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.
Escape the urban bustle at Litchfield National Park and Mindil Beach. Spend the 20th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Crocosaurus Cove and hunt for treasures at Parap Market.

To see maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Darwin itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 38°C in April, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
