Darwin

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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Wave Lagoon and Crocodylus Park. Change things up with a short trip to Litchfield National Park in Batchelor (about 1h 20 min away). Spend the 17th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 19th (Sat) at Darwin Waterfront. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Mindil Beach, learn about all things military at Darwin Aviation Museum, take an in-depth tour of RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility, and get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour.

For more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Darwin trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airport is Darwin International Airport. In October, daytime highs in Darwin are 39°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
