Darwin & Surrounds

Map showing the Darwin and Surrounds region in the NT

Sail across the harbour from Darwin to the Tiwi Islands, glide across wetlands and spot local wildlife, or cool off under a waterfall in Litchfield National Park.

As the Northern Territory’s thriving capital, Darwin attracts travellers from all around the globe looking to experience its outdoor tropical lifestyle.

With waterfront dining, crocodile adventures, rich historical experiences, and access to the Tiwi Islands all within a few minutes of the city centre, there’s enough to do to fill a weekend or a week.

Litchfield National Park is just a 90 minute drive from Darwin and is a favourite for the locals year-round. It’s an easy day trip with a range of swimming spots and waterfalls, and is well worth staying overnight in the nearby accommodation.

Explore the lush Mary River wetlands, a thriving microcosm of Top End wildlife, birds and fish. Located about an hour east of Darwin it’s a good place to stop on your way to Kakadu National Park or for a day trip.
