Sprawled across the North coast of Australia and looking out onto the Timor Sea, the Northern Territory's capital city boasts extensive beaches and a tropical climate with distinct wet and dry seasons. Named after the famed anthropologist, Darwin is a bustling hub of diverse culture which blooms into a wide and colourful array of festivals, restaurants, art galleries and boutiques.
Southeast of Darwin lies Australia's largest national park - Kakadu. See how ancient Aboriginal culture has been preserved in this beautiful, naturally thriving area. See cave paintings from as long as 20,000 years ago, spy on huge saltwater crocodiles, or take a scenic flight over the park to view the breathtaking region from above.
Time your visit to Darwin between May and September - the region's dry season - to experience the city at its best. Temperatures average in the high twenties, and the city comes alive with festivals and celebrations, promising that visitors will never have a dull day.
Darwin is perched on the edge of the Timor Sea, and thus has the benefits of both a beach and a city holiday. Bask in the warm sunshine on Casuarina Beach, before taking a stroll through one of the thriving shopping districts in the city. Spend a tranquil afternoon deep sea fishing or challenging your sense of intellectual perception in one of Darwin's many aboriginal or modern art galleries. For those guests who fancy themselves as intrepid explorers of this untamed corner of the world, climb aboard a Mary River Wetlands Cruise to familiarise yourself with the gigantic saltwater crocodiles gliding through the murky water. If you are feeling particularly brave, climb into the 'Cage of Death' at Crocosaurus Cove to get up close and personal with these prehistoric leviathans.
Find the world represented through the restaurants in Darwin. A taste for every palate can be found here, from traditional Greek food, to specialist vegetarian restaurants and paleo cafes, to modern Australian eateries. Darwin's proximity to Asia is well represented via the city's favourite cuisine, with a wide range of delicious Asian inspired restaurants, such as Roast and Noodle or Hanuman Restaurant.
For a street-food Mecca, visit Jetty and the Fish - gaze out over the Timor Sea and Casuarina Beach from Nightcliff, whilst enjoying a spicy fish taco and perfect chips from the place often hailed as the best place to eat in Darwin. Guests looking for somewhere special and a little upmarket to celebrate a special occasion, or just indulge themselves, go no further than Pee Wee's at the Point. Here guests will find gourmet dining in a world-class setting, with a friendly, relaxed attitude.
Darwin becomes charged in the evening, a social buzz running through the streets as the neon lights of the nightclubs flicker on while the dusky sun sinks behind the cityscape. Feel the beat of dance music thrumming underfoot as you walk down Mitchell Street late at night, later finding yourself in Discovery Nightclub or Monsoon Bar, sugary tang of a cosmopolitan on your tongue as you lose yourself to the music.
On a different night, wind your way through the chattering crowds milling around the Mindil Beach Sunset Market, inhaling the sweet, spiced breath of fresh Asian street-food sizzling on hotplates under brightly coloured canvas stalls. Stop to have a swirling henna tattoo inked across your hand, then buy a handmade Australian opal necklace at the next stall and notice the acoustic chords of a long haired, smiling musician drifting through the breeze and wrapping themselves around the memory of your perfect Darwin holiday like a ribbon around a gift.
