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.
Explore Darwin's surroundings by going to Batchelor (Litchfield National Park & Nina's Ark Wildlife Sanctuary), Territory Wildlife Park (in Berry Springs) and Adelaide River War Cemetery (in Adelaide River). There's still lots to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, make a splash at Darwin Waterfront, see the interesting displays at Defence of Darwin Experience, and enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach.
