The Location

Darwin is closer to Asia than it is to Sydney; it's a cultural centre perched at the tip of the Australian continent, and its tropical, solar climate is a perfect atmosphere for wining, dining, and shopping. Darwin hosts nightclubs, a casino, theatres, restaurants, and multi-cultural markets that are internationally famous.

There is a waterfront precinct with waterfront restaurants, shops, safe swimming lagoons for all the family, outdoor cinema and harbour cruises.

If you're looking for the great outdoors, Darwin has it all: beaches, parks, springs, hiking, diving, and natural wonder in every form. Darwin has great beaches close to the city and for those times when you can’t go in the water there is plenty of popular freshwater swimming spots nearby, such as Howard Springs, Berry Springs and Manton Dam.
