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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Mindil Beach and Lameroo Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Litchfield National Park and Crocodylus Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Litchfield National Park (Tjaetaba Falls, Tolmer Falls, & more), Batchelor (Coomalie Cultural Centre, Bachelor Museum, & more) and Berry Springs (Territory Wildlife Park & Crazy Acres). Spend the 23rd (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 7th (Thu) exploring nature at Mary River National Park. The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Crocosaurus Cove, see the interesting displays at Defence of Darwin Experience, make a splash at Wave Lagoon, and race across the water with a speed boat tour.
