Best places to see, eat, stay and shop in Darwin, NT
Fish DarwinMy family and I enjoyed a half-day fishing tour with Fish Darwin. The boat was clean, the crew informative and there was a nice relaxed vibe on board. The barbecue lunch was great and we couldn’t believe our luck at catching so many big fish.- RenaeLitchfield National ParkIf you’re hiring a car while visiting Darwin I recommend a drive to Litchfield National Park. it is about 130km southwest of Darwin and has a great swimming hole with a waterfall and rocks you can jump off. There’s a small cafe and ice cream shop on-site and some nice walking trails to explore nearby.
– RodneyThe Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern TerritoryThe Museum and Art Gallery at Bullocky Point on the Darwin Harbour is a great way to spend a spare couple of hours in Darwin. Collections include Aboriginal, South-East Asian and Oceanic art and cultural displays and there is another section dedicated to Cyclone Tracy that really puts the event in context to the lives of people who were living in the area at the time. All of it was very interesting and there’s a cafe and fantastic gift shop if you’re hoping to pick up an authentic Aboriginal artwork or souvenir from your trip.- SarahCrocosaurus CoveI love that Crocosaurus Cove is right on the main street of Darwin. Home to some of the biggest saltwater crocodiles on the planet, it is fantastic to see them up close in the aquarium-style setting. My girlfriend and I thought it would be a good time to experience the “Cage of Death” but the crocodiles were pretty uninterested in us, which was the only disappointing aspect of our visit.- Luke
