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.
On the 25th (Thu), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Christ Church Cathedral Darwin, then get engrossed in the history at RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility, then take in the exciting artwork at Mason Gallery, and finally get interesting insight from Tours. Keep things going the next day: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Cathedral, then get engrossed in the history at Darwin Aviation Museum, then take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and finally identify plant and animal life at Territory Wildlife Park.
