Darwin Area Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Darwin Area
Perched at the top end of the country surrounded by water and red sand, sits the City of Darwin. The region is famous for warm summer weather all year round and authentic Australian outback experiences. But there’s more to Darwin than just crocodiles. Acting as the regional capital of Australia, Darwin is the smallest of the major cities in the country, yet this little town is jam packed with major events, family attractions and natural landscapes.
Treat your tastebuds to local and fresh produce at award winning restaurants in the waterfront lagoon. Major suburbs in the region include Parap and Rapid Creek. Head to any of the major suburbs for more local markets and a variety of food choices, and guide your tastebuds through a Darwin food adventure.
Pay a visit to the tourist hot spot Crocosaurus Cove and meet the monster who lurks in the murky waters. Almost as popular as the crocodiles are the markets. Darwin is home to a number of popular beach-side markets which run all year round, including Mindil Beach Sunset Markets. A popular activity with locals and tourists alike is the Waterfront Wave Lagoon. The manmade wave beach is a safer and crocodile-free swimming option, a perfect place to go with the family.
Explore the natural coastline of Darwin or head to the bush and discover some of the most pristine and untouched national parks. Picnic tables and parks sit waiting for children at Jingili Water Gardens.
Visit the top end for endless summers and long days and make the most of the great Australian weather, local museums and attractions suitable for the entire family. There’s plenty to do in Darwin, so don’t forget to check out the Northern Territory capital.
