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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Darwin: Batchelor (Litchfield National Park & Batchelor Butterfly Farm and Pet Garden), Litchfield National Park (Wangi Falls Art & Cultural Centre, Wangi Falls, & more) and Adelaide River War Cemetery (in Adelaide River). Spend the 10th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 15th (Fri) at Darwin Waterfront. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Defence of Darwin Experience, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, cool off at Wave Lagoon, and explore the striking landscape at Berry Springs Nature Park.

To see maps, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Darwin trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Darwin International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 38°C in May, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
