A cosmopolitan city in the great dusty outback

Situated on a magnificent harbour located on the north coast of Australia, Darwin is the closest capital city to Asia. A tropical monsoonal climate, outdoor lifestyle, lush vegetation, fascinating wildlife, fantastic fishing, diving adventures, the pristine Litchfield National Park, Tiwi Islands and an exciting mix of Indigenous and Asian influences make this city a truly memorable place to visit.

While Darwin is relatively small in size, it has everything you would be hoping to find from a cosmopolitan city. Great restaurants, plenty of cafés to get your daily caffeine fix, ample shopping, even a casino to play a few rounds of cards.

Let the autumn colours shine

The stifling humidity and intense but impressive thunderstorms makes Darwin an interesting place weather-wise. The dry season (May – October) where the days are sunny and temperature is consistent, is the ideal time to visit. You can swim at the beaches, drive on the roads without getting bogged and there are plenty of events and festivals during this period. Be prepared though, there will be a lot more tourists and you will be paying premium prices for accommodation and food.

It may be hot, but careful where you swim!

If you need to cool off, the safest place in Darwin is the Top End swimming pool. Even though you'll come across some beautiful and very appealing watering holes on your travels, they are not necessarily 100% safe from crocodiles. The ocean can be dangerous too, particularly from October - May, when there are deadly stingers (Irukandji Jellyfish) hanging out. Play it safe and stick with the pool!
