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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Territory Wildlife Park (in Berry Springs), Batchelor (Batchelor Butterfly Farm and Pet Garden, Litchfield National Park, & more) and Humpty Doo (Didgeridoo Hut & Art Gallery & Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve). There's lots more to do: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, kick back and relax at Mindil Beach, and take in the dramatic natural features at Berry Springs Nature Park.

To see photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Darwin trip maker website .

August in Darwin sees daily highs of 37°C and lows of 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
