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.
Change things up with a short trip to Territory Wildlife Park in Berry Springs (about 42 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, cool off at Wave Lagoon, examine the collection at Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, and explore the striking landscape at Berry Springs Nature Park.

Please note that visitors are no longer allowed to trek up Uluru.

Located right in the center of Australia, the national park boasts perhaps the country's most iconic natural symbol and a sacred place for the region's indigenous people--as well as Kata Tjuta, a collection of 36 red rocks forming an equally distinctive sight.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is known for nature, museums, and outdoors. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the dramatic natural features at Uluru, shop like a local with Walkatjara Art Uluru, take an in-depth tour of Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, and stroll through Kuniya Walk.
