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.
Take a break from Darwin with a short trip to Litchfield National Park in Batchelor, about 1h 20 min away. Spend the 21st (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 28th (Tue) on the water with a fishing tour. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Defence of Darwin Experience, look for all kinds of wild species at Crocosaurus Cove, make a splash at Darwin Waterfront, and take in the dramatic natural features at Berry Springs Nature Park.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airport is Darwin International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
