Visit Darwin

Darwin is located on Larrakia country in the north of Australia and is the capital of the Northern Territory. Like most of the Top End it experiences a tropical climate with a wet and dry seasons, with the 'Dry' running from May through to September and the 'Wet' October to March or also commonly referred to as the 'Green Season'. Due to its close proximity to Asia, Darwin boasts an extraordinary selection of flavours and tastes when it comes to food, with menus taking inspiration from the land with local produce such as barramundi, Kakadu plums, lemon myrtle and even green ants.

Check out this amazing tour guide our friends at Tourism Top End have put together to make sure you have the best time in Darwin.

Blending its close proximity to Asia with an ocean brimming with fresh catches, the Northern Territory capital has captured the ideal ingredients which make Darwin a modern dining delight. We've got the lot when it comes to fine feasting and here's a tiny taste of our best.


Step outside your everyday and open your eyes to adventure. See prehistoric crocodiles as they launch from the water to catch food on a jumping crocodile cruise, swim in stunning waterholes with cascading waterfalls in the background, see the famous Australian wildlife and surround yourself with millions of years of natural beauty.

Darwin and it's surrounding areas has something for everyone, with no one missing out on an experience of a lifetime. If you have the time, we encourage you to take a trip to Kakadu or down to Katherine to experience a vast range of beauty of the Top End.


Multicultural Darwin has an extensive history full of art and Larrakia culture as well as recent history of aviation and WWII. Whether you jump a day tour to West Arnhem were the Traditional Owners take you through over 60,000 years of history, or view some unique and stunning art and culture at the Museum of Art Gallery Northern Territory, you will be in awe. Darwin also offers a number of sights and Museums that showcase Darwin and Australia's involvement in WWII and the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese in 1942. However you spend your time in Darwin, you will certainly take away a wealth of knowledge and culture from a truly unique part of Australia and the world.
