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.
Get outdoors at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Crocosaurus Cove. Step out of Darwin with an excursion to Litchfield National Park in Batchelor--about 1h 20 min away. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach, examine the collection at Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

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

Adelaide exists contentedly as a cultured, diverse, and attractive city with a laid-back center, leafy residential districts, and an underlying cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Venture out of the city with trips to Greenock (Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars & Kalleske Wines). Dedicate the 10th (Sat) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Cleland Wildlife Park, don't miss a visit to Rundle Mall, contemplate the long history of Adelaide Oval, and hunt for treasures at Adelaide Central Market.
