Darwin – Welcome to the capital of Australia’s Northern Territory. This coastal city has lots on offer; check out our video to see the best spots to visit.
Also known as “The Top End,” Darwin perches on the Timor Sea, giving it striking views of the ocean. Due to its distance from other Australian cities, it is somewhat isolated, leading to a real sense of small-town community despite its status as a large city.
Get a taste of this community during your Darwin vacation by stopping at the Mindil Beach Markets; on Thursdays and Sundays, you can run into almost half the city as residents turn out to shop at the various vendors and devour local multicultural cuisine.
Get outdoors at Crocadylys Park, which is filled with Darwin’s legendary salt and freshwater crocodiles. The Darwin region is home to over 20 national parks, so you can get a taste of the Australian outback without venturing too far from civilization.
