Situated at the top end of the Top End of Australia, Darwin is a tropical coastal city, just a stone’s throw from the outback. With a laid-back culture, a rich history and a stunning backdrop, Darwin is a beautiful city to visit, with plenty to offer visitors of all ages.

Often dubbed a cultural melting pot, Darwin has a wide range of restaurants offering an exceptional variety of cuisines. Visitors to Darwin can also enjoy a broad range of leisure activities. Museums and galleries offer a glimpse of Darwin’s intriguing past, while its parks and gardens allow visitors to enjoy the beauty of the present.

There are markets and shops to explore, flora and fauna to discover, and bars, cafés and restaurants to relax in.
