Unlike other Metropolitan cities in Australia where it can be easy to mistake one for another, in Darwin you experience an Australia that is like no other, with adventure at your doorstep. The Northern Territory is huge - but has a small population. Over 142,000 people live in the territory capital Darwin, with approximately another 100,000 living in remoter towns throughout the Territory such as Alice Springs, Katherine or even smaller, more remoter communities.
The unique healthcare and social issues of the population attract medical specialists from around the world. The medicine can be complex but hugely rewarding.
Darwin is a modern and very cosmopolitan city. It is extremely easy to get around and the lifestyle opportunities are amazing. Schools are great and there is a university.
