Darwin

The smallest of Australia’s state capitals, Darwin has nevertheless become an attractive and important urban center, being simultaneously one of the country’s most modernized cities and a gateway to both the Top End region and South East Asia.
Attractions like Nature & Wildlife Tours and Litchfield National Park make great kid-friendly stops. Get outdoors at Mindil Beach and Speed Boats Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Territory Wildlife Park (in Berry Springs), Batchelor Butterfly Farm and Pet Garden (in Batchelor) and Litchfield National Park (Magnetic Termite Mounds, Wangi Falls, & more). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 1st (Mon) at Darwin Waterfront. Spend the 2nd (Tue) on the water with a fishing tour. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Berry Springs Nature Park, examine the collection at Defence of Darwin Experience, get interesting insight from Tours, and take an in-depth tour of Darwin Aviation Museum.
