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 a short trip to Litchfield National Park in Batchelor (about 1h 45 min away). Spend the 16th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 22nd (Thu) at Darwin Waterfront. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach, examine the collection at Defence of Darwin Experience, get engrossed in the history at RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility, and admire the natural beauty at George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens.

To see where to stay, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Darwin travel planner .

Philadelphia, USA to Darwin is an approximately 32-hour flight. Traveling from Philadelphia to Darwin, you'll lose 14 hours due to the time zone difference.

Queensland’s biggest town and state capital, Brisbane has an attractive, manicured image based around its riverside aesthetic as well as the contrast between its high-rise center and extensive urban greenery.

Movie World (in Oxenford), Surfers Paradise (Infinity Attraction & Surfer's Paradise Beach) and Sea World Theme Park (in Main Beach). Pack the 2nd (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Dreamworld. The adventure continues: let the kids burn off some steam at South Bank Parklands, kick back and relax at Dicky Beach, get great views at Mount Coot-tha Lookout, and identify plant and animal life at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
