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 Crazy Acres (in Berry Springs), Litchfield National Park (Buley Rockhole & Wangi Falls) and Batchelor (Litchfield National Park & Nina's Ark Wildlife Sanctuary). Spend the 5th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 10th (Wed) at Darwin Waterfront. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach, identify plant and animal life at Crocosaurus Cove, see the interesting displays at Defence of Darwin Experience, and take in the waterfront at Darwin Wharf Precinct.

Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Zurich in October, with highs in Darwin at 39°C and lows at 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) to allow time to drive to Perth.

A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Change things up with these side-trips from Perth: Darlington Gallery (in Darlington), Warnbro Beach (in Warnbro) and Rockingham (Penguin Island & Rockingham Beach). Dedicate the 3rd (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Pack the 5th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Adventure World Perth Australia. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Kings Park & Botanic Garden, look for all kinds of wild species at Caversham Wildlife Park, shop like a local with Fremantle Markets, and contemplate the waterfront views at Swan River.
