Tours, attractions, accommodation and bookings
The Territory's Visitor Information Centres are stocked with brochures for just about every imaginable tour, activity, attraction and accommodation option on offer – take them away and study them, or chat to a staff member about what best suits your holiday needs. Find the best places to stay with (or without) kids, the most adrenaline-escalating tours, or upcoming gigs and exhibitions. Once your decision is made, staff can make all your bookings for you. For free.
Maps and resources
If you're planning to chart your own adventure around Darwin and surrounds, collect maps and local advice before you set out. Purchase specialised maps or pick up freebies dotted with suggested activities and attractions. Road trippers can check with staff about road conditions and permits, and nature lovers can ask about the best places to camp, walk or view wildlife in the Northern Territory's unforgettable national parks.
Darwin's main Visitor Information Centre is in the city centre; you'll also find visitor information counters at major transport hubs and attractions in the region.
