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.
Take a break from the city and head to Mindil Beach and Crocosaurus Cove. Venture out of the city with trips to Litchfield National Park (Florence Falls, Buley Rockhole, & more), Territory Wildlife Park (in Berry Springs) and Batchelor (Litchfield National Park & Batchelor Butterfly Farm and Pet Garden). Spend the 16th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 21st (Thu) at Darwin Waterfront. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, head outdoors with Far Out Adventures, cool off at Wave Lagoon, and identify plant and animal life at Casuarina Coastal Reserve.
