Darwin city

Discover the Northern Territory’s tropical capital that’s ready for adventure, year-round.

Not only the gateway to the Northern Territory, Darwin City is a destination in its own right. The capital is no stranger to adventure; you can jump on jet skis for a cruise around the Darwin harbour, fly over the city on a heli-pub-crawl, and cool off on the Aqua Park at the Darwin Waterfront – the biggest of its kind in Australia.

Get involved in Darwin’s emerging food scene through indulging your senses at the mouth-watering outdoor sunset market, sampling bush-tucker-inspired menus, tasting fresh seafood and trying a local icon: laksa for breakfast.

Whether you’ve come to Darwin for adventure, food, culture or history, there’s an endless summer of activities awaiting every traveller.

You’ve come to the right place!
