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.
On the 17th (Thu), pause for some serene contemplation at St Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Cathedral, then enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach, then examine the collection at Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, and finally identify plant and animal life at Crocosaurus Cove.

For photos, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Darwin road trip tool.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Darwin. In September, plan for daily highs up to 38°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Thu) so you can go by car to Jabiru (Kakadu National Park).

A largely unpopulated, parched land of deep red desert, spectacular rock formations, and small, isolated settlements, Northern Territory has perhaps the most distinctively Australian aesthetic of all the country’s states. The region’s towns and cities are clustered around the Stuart Highway--the iconic road that serves as Northern Territory’s main artery--rather than the coastline, as is normally the case in Australia.
