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 Litchfield National Park and Crocosaurus Cove will get you outdoors. Spend the 27th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach, take in the waterfront at Darwin Wharf Precinct, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, and brush up on your military savvy at Darwin Aviation Museum.
