Gateway to the South Pacific

As the capital of Australia’s vast and sparsely populated Northern Territory, Darwin has grown from a gateway to South East Asia to one of the country’s most modern and tropical cities. It features miles of pristine beaches like Casuarina Beach and Mindil Beach, fantastic fishing for barramundi (the iconic fish of the region), and a multitude of parks and gardens like the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens, Knuckey Lagoons Conservation Reserve, Charles Darwin National Park, Bicentennial Park, and Jingili Water Gardens.

Darwin is also home to the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park—an incredible combination of lush rainforests, wetlands, wildlife, and a treasure trove of Aboriginal rock art. Visit chic Cullen Bay Marina, cruise along beside crocodiles on the Adelaide River and get a taste of the city’s delicious multicultural mix at the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets.
