Darwin & Surrounds

The “Top End” of Australia is one of the last genuine outback regions, with its magnificent, remote natural environment, lush, green and tropical in one corner and harsh and arid in The Red Centre. The Top End occupies the huge square bump at the top of the Australian map, half of which is the vast area of Arnhem Land, owned by the country's traditional Aboriginal people. The modern multicultural city of Darwin, the Territory's capital, is a vibrant, cosmopolitan town that attracts tourists from around the globe, eager for the authentic Australian experience.


Darwin is a lively cultural hub. Visit the city’s museums and art galleries, take a stroll around Darwin Harbour, spend a day at the Leanyer Recreation Park and Wave Lagoon, see a B-52 Bomber at the Australian Aviation Heritage Centre, or enjoy the sun set at Mindil Beach Markets.
