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.
Visiting Nature & Wildlife Tours and Mindil Beach will get you outdoors. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Crocosaurus Cove, take in the waterfront at Darwin Wharf Precinct, make a splash at Big Buoy Water Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Cathedral.

Barcelona, Spain to Darwin is an approximately 27-hour flight.

When traveling from Barcelona in August, plan for a bit warmer days and slightly colder nights in Darwin: temperatures range from 37°C by day to 22°C at night.
