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.
On the 21st (Tue), look for all kinds of wild species at Crocosaurus Cove, take in the waterfront at Darwin Wharf Precinct, and then make a splash at Wave Lagoon. Here are some ideas for day two: take an in-depth tour of RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility, see the interesting displays at Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, then see the interesting displays at Defence of Darwin Experience, and finally see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Darwin trip simple and quick.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Darwin International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 37°C in January, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Jabiru (Kakadu National Park).
