Once a lonely seaside port, Darwin has thrived in recent years and is now making its mark as the vibrant capital of Australia’s remotest territory.
More than just a stop off point for the renowned Kakadu National Park, Darwin itself has an array of activities and sights to offer the traveller. Enjoy Darwin’s balmy climate while exploring one of the city’s popular outdoor markets. Multicultural melting pots of food, arts and craft, the Parup Village Market and the Mindil Beach Sunset Market typify the atmosphere and culture of this buzzing city. The Mindil Beach Sunset Market is open Thursday and Sunday evenings between May and October.
The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory are both popular attractions for travellers, showing exhibits featuring Darwin’s rich cultural and maritime history. The Aboriginal Art Collection is a highlight, boasting bark paintings, carvings and dot paintings from local indigenous regions. There is an entire room dedicated to the Cyclone Tracey exhibit, a display which remains a favourite amongst travellers of all ages. It shows off a stirring visual representation of the before and after of the cyclone as well as a deafening audio experience depicting the monster storm. ATG Downunder staff are readily available to organise your group admissions to the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory – hassle free.
Darwin’s restored waterfront precinct has become an attraction in itself in recent years boasting an array of restaurants, eateries and shops. If you’re after some relaxation the outdoor deckchair cinema is a great place to unwind under the stars. Climbing on board a historical pearl lugger for a sunset dinner cruise is also sure to be a memorable Darwin experience.
