The smallest of Australia’s state capitals, Darwin has nevertheless become an attractive and important urban center, being simultaneously one of the country’s most modernized cities and a gateway to both the Top End region and South East Asia.
Explore Darwin's surroundings by going to Batchelor (Litchfield National Park & Nina's Ark Wildlife Sanctuary) and Litchfield National Park (Buley Rockhole & Florence Falls). And it doesn't end there: race across the water with a speed boat tour, identify plant and animal life at Casuarina Coastal Reserve, take an in-depth tour of RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility, and surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.
