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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility and Territory Wildlife Park. Your inner history buff will appreciate Adelaide River War Cemetery and Star Village. Step out of Darwin to go to Berry Springs and see Crazy Acres, which is approximately 42 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, meet the residents at Aquascene, try to win big at Skycity Darwin Casino, and don't miss a visit to Magnetic Termite Mounds.
