When visiting somewhere new, it’s always good to get tips from the locals before you plan your daily activities. Darwin locals are spoilt for choice when it comes to things to do, but we have gathered our top tips in Darwin City for you to enjoy.
1. Enjoy the street art in Darwin City
Darwin City’s blank building walls have been transformed with splashes of colour from various artists, creating a colourful vibe in the city. With paintings of local birds and wildlife to famous people, the talent is incredible to see especially on such a large scale. Wander around to see what you can find, or for a quick way to see the best examples of Darwin Street Art take a Laneway Art Tour.
2. Fish our beautiful harbour
The Northern Territory is well known for its incredible fishing, particularly for Barramundi. Darwin is spoilt with a beautiful harbour (seven times the size of Sydney harbour) with fishing opportunities all year round.
Equinox Fishing Charters provide an unforgettable experience, with half day tours for individuals or groups of up to 32 people with all levels of angling experience.
There is a whole range of reef fish in the Top End including golden snapper, rock cod, tricky snapper, jewfish, coral trout, salmon and many more. Seasonally, Spanish mackerel, tuna, cobia and giant trevally can also be caught.
Fishing tours do depend on our huge tidal differences of up to 8 meters, but most fishing charters are flexible depending on conditions and numbers.
