Darwin

Outback Capital of the Northern Territory

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 Fishing Charters & Tours and Berry Springs Nature Park will get you outdoors. Get some cultural insight at Darwin Military Museum and Star Village. Step out of Darwin with an excursion to Territory Wildlife Park in Berry Springs--about 42 minutes away. There's still lots to do: cool off at Wave Lagoon, view the masterpieces at Provenance Arts, browse the exhibits of Mason Gallery, and stop by Paul Arnold Gallery.

To see photos, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Darwin trip planning website.
