Your Darwin Destination Guide

It’s easy to lose weeks in the Northern Territory’s relaxed capital. With its tropical weather, bustling markets, outdoor adventures and rich Indigenous culture, Darwin is a melting pot of colourful characters from diverse backgrounds, and sets an easy pace for the curious traveller.

But make sure you don’t miss out on the bonanza of beautiful scenery, native wildlife and unique environments accessible just beyond Darwin’s city limits. To truly experience the wonders the Northern Territory has to offer, we recommend you add the following experiences to your itinerary.

Pay a visit to Charles Darwin National Park

Grab yourself a rental car for the day and make the short trip from the city to visit Charles Darwin National Park. This natural landmark is a popular destination for tour guides for the dual purpose of showcasing both the lively mangrove habitats of Darwin Harbour and the World War II relics that can be viewed here. Learn a little about Darwin’s role during the war, as you look upon crumbling reinforced concrete bunkers that were used for storing munitions during wartime.

Embark on a sunset cruise

Darwin has an immense harbour to rival that of Sydney’s, and as you can imagine, has an impressive boating scene to boot. Do yourself a favour and book an ocean cruise with Sail Darwin. Their Champagne Sunset Sail will see you gliding across the turquoise waters on a 50-foot luxury catamaran. Stretch out on the yacht’s inbuilt floor hammocks with a glass of bubbly and watch the surf churning past below as the sun slips below the horizon. Sounds like heaven, right?

Watch jumping crocs

Once you’ve had your fill of the picturesque oceans, take to Adelaide River for an up close and personal look at Darwin’s infamous reptilian wildlife. Experience the thrill of watching a six-meter-long saltwater crocodile launch itself out of the murky river water – just metres away from your boat – to clamp its fearsome jaws around a tasty morsel.

Not for the faint of heart, these immersive river cruises offer a chance to learn first-hand about these ancient creatures and the other native wildlife that call the river home. Your expert guide will provide commentary throughout the trip while tempting some prehistoric beasts to erupt from the waters with dangling bait along the way. Do you dare to take to the waters?

Hire a car and embark on an outdoor road trip

For those seeking the quintessential outback experience, we highly recommend you rent a car for a couple of weeks and take to the great open roads. There are numerous road trip routes to choose if you’re starting from Darwin, allowing you to soak up a truly unique countryside that can only be found only in northern Australia. 

While we suggest allowing a week to visit some of the most popular spots in the NT outback, if you really want to embark on a road trip adventure, you can look to travel the 1956 kilometres to visit the iconic Uluru down in Alice Springs, while making ample stops along the way, of course. For such a trip, you can easily spend two to three weeks as you detour to attractions along the way such as Katherine Gorge, the Devil’s Marbles and Kings Canyon.

Whichever direction you choose as you drive out of Darwin, you’re bound to stumble upon beautiful scenery unlike anything else you’ve ever seen before.
