A Guide to Darwin

Despite almost being completely destroyed by the devastating Cyclone Tracy in the mid 70's, modern day Darwin has emerged from the tragedy triumphant, having rebuilt the city to more than outmatch its former glory. Effervescent, continuously in the throes of vivacious rebirth, eclectic, dynamic and cosmopolitan, Darwin is the energetic capital city of the Northern Territory of Australia. Occupying the coastal fringes on the Indian Ocean's Timor Sea, the city has a powerful culturally diverse population with well over 50 different nationalities living harmoniously together. From humble beginnings as a small pioneer port trading post, growing in leaps and bounds to become an integral port city and certainly the largest in the Northern Territory, Darwin is a sensational feast for the soul and the senses.

Good to Know

Darwin is a city seeped in humidity most of the year and with a tropical climate all year round, the heat is perpetual - 32 C/ 90F every month of the year, and the seasons are separated only into wet and dry. One of the most lightening prone areas on the planet, Darwin's wet season which runs from November to March is monsoon and cyclone season and not the best time to visit as despite the obvious, the humidity can be unbearable if you are not used to it.

Out and About in Darwin

Darwin Crocodile Farm - With an abundance of crocs here in the Northern Territory, more so than anywhere else in Australia, this farm is a real treat. Go in the early afternoon and check out more than 8000 salt water and fresh water crocs at feeding time.

Aviation Museum - A true slice of paradise, if you are into all things military and aircraft. Check out the B52 Bomber, you won't miss it, as well as a Japanese Zero fighter that was shot down in the 1940s, and what is left of the RAAF Mirage Jet that was collected after it crashed in a swamp nearby.

Fannie Bay Gaol Museum - For 100 years, the Fannie Bay Gaol was the biggest prison in all of Darwin. Showcasing the fascinating, yet grim history of the jail, visitors can still tour the cells and the gallows.

Indo Pacific Marine Aquarium - A showcase of rare and unique marine ecosystems and entire reefs that are completely self-sufficient. Head out on the night time tour, and enjoy a hearty lobster dinner afterwards.

East Point Reserve - Watch the wallabies come out to feed at sunset, while enjoying a sun downer at this peaceful spot. Take the kids for a swim in Lake Alexander and let them enjoy the playground while the family prepares a BBQ.

Chinese Museum & Chung Wah Temple - The displays and showcases are a representation of the Chinese community who have settled in the Top End. The sacred tree is thought to have direct links to Buddha.

WWII Oil-Storage Tunnels - Explore the WWII oil storage tunnels where you will love the chance to get out of the blistering heat. Even though there were eventually not used, the trip is a fascinating one with a load of photographs and memorabilia.

George Brown Botanical Gardens - George Brown was the curator of the 42 hectare gardens between the 70s and 90s. An exotic showcase of some of Mother Nature's most magnificent offerings.

Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory - Bark carvings and paintings, dot desert paintings and an enthralling collection of Aboriginal art. Check out the Cyclone Tracy Room, and make sure you go to the dark room where you can listen to the full force of the Cyclone as it was on the day it arrived.
