Darwin et ses environs et ses environs

Carte de Darwin et de sa région dans le Territoire du Nord

Traversez la baie à la voile, de Darwin jusqu'aux îles Tiwi, glissez en "air boat" dans les marécages à la rencontre de la faune locale, ou rafraîchissez-vous sous une cascade dans le parc national de Litchfield; vous n'aurez que l'embarras du choix à Darwin et dans ses environs, et vous adorerez découvrir les multiples facettes de cette région très spéciale.

Capitale prospère et accueillante du Territoire du Nord, Darwin attire les voyageurs du monde entier, qui viennent y profiter de son style de vie tropical et décontracté.

Avec ses restaurants au bord de l'eau, ses excursions à la rencontre des crocodiles, son émouvant patrimoine historique et l'accès facile aux charmantes îles Tiwi, il y a beaucoup à faire à Darwin, le temps d'un week-end ou pour un séjour prolongé.

Litchfield National Park est à seulement une heure et demi de Darwin en voiture et c'est l'un des lieux favoris des locaux, tout au long de l'année. On peut facilement en profiter pour une journée, mais avec avec tous ces lieux de baignade et ces magnifiques cascades, ça vaut vraiment la peine de passer la nuit à proximité.

Explorez les zones humides luxuriantes des Mary River wetlands, emblématique microcosme du Top End, grouillant de faune, d'oiseaux et de poissons endémiques. Située à environ une heure à l'est de la ville, la région de Mary River constitue une halte agréable en chemin vers le parc national de Kakadu, ou une excursion facile à la journée depuis Darwin.

There are a number of well known places within #Kakadu National Park to watch the early morning show, however Nawurlandja Lookout has to be one of our favourites 😍 Following a short clamber up a relatively steep rock slope, you'll have world-class views across Anbangbang Billabong to Nourlangie Rock (Burrungkuy) and the #ArnhemLand escarpment. This peaceful spot is great for sitting back and taking in first light or watching a tropical summer storm roll in during the afternoon.

Orange you glad you got to witness this golden sunset on the #TiwiIslands, @elisecook! 😜🧡 @TiwiIslandRetreat is situated at Munanampi Point on the south western coast of Bathurst Island, the smaller of the two major islands which make up the Tiwis (located 80 kilometres north of #Darwin). The ecosystem around the retreat is virtually untouched with turtles, crocodiles, stingrays, mud crabs, dolphins, sharks and an abundance of bird-life right on its doorstep.​ Their trip packages are designed for friends, couples or groups wanting to explore more of the Tiwi Islands and include return charter flights and twin share rooms with shared facilities. The retreat also offers various activities such as scenic helicopter flights, mud-crabbing, art and cultural experiences along with a swimming hole adventure.

“Couldn’t have found a Bitter place for a sunrise swim..." said @imlukemackenzie after a recent visit to Bitter Springs 😜 These crystal clear hot springs are located in Elsey National Park, just two kilometres from #Mataranka and a one-hour drive south of #Katherine. The colours of this spot are almost edible, with decadent turquoise blues from the springs set against the alluring green foliage of surrounding tropical woodlands. Feel like a float? Bring your noodle then walk up from the first entry point to enjoy a short and relaxing natural ride down the stream. ​Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Luke! ​#SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd #VisitKatherine

Time to put your feet up and enjoy the show! This picture-perfect Red Centre icon isn’t just lovely to look at, it also holds great spiritual and cultural significance to the local Anangu people. Join a cultural tour with @exploreuluru or @seitoutbackaustralia and learn more about the history behind this special part of @visitcentralaus from knowledgeable guides. Tip: #Uluru changes colours all the time, depending on the time of day and brightness of the sky, so we highly recommend visiting the different viewing platforms at sunrise and sunset to experience this magic for yourself.

Our tropical summer sunrises are something else 💜 Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve is a haven for wildlife, particularly a wide variety of birds. There are a handful of different walks to choose from, all of which allow you to really explore the wetland area... without getting your feet wet! Wander along the easy paths through shady forests of paperbark and stop at the various lookouts and viewing platforms for stunning views across the floodplains. The reserve is only a 45 minute drive from #Darwin and a great stop on the way to #Kakadu National Park. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @rachstewartnz! ​#SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

Soak up your outback surrounds in style 😉 @KingsCanyon Resort's deluxe spa rooms take bath time to a whole new level 🙌 Located roughly halfway between #AliceSprings and #Uluru, #KingsCanyon and Watarrka National Park are more than just a day trip destination with a number of bush-walking options which take in the sights and let you marvel at the sheer natural beauty, along with adventure activities and cultural experiences. After a big day of exploring, you can return to your room and hop in the tub which has beautiful views of the rocky escarpment. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @fleurj! ​#SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Keeping cool, NT style! 💦 If you're a big fan of waterfalls like us, a visit to #Litchfield National Park is definitely a must! Fed by twin falls and fringed by shady trees, Florence Falls ranks as one of the park's front runners, particularly as it's swimmable almost year round. Reaching the fall's glistening jade-green swimming hole is half the appeal 👉 the walk is short, relatively easy and showcases the dramatic contrast between mighty sandstone escarpment and lush monsoon forest. An easy day trip from #Darwin, Litchfield may be a fraction of the size of Kakadu, but when it comes to swimming opportunities it packs a serious punch 👌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @outtaorbit_! ​#SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

Don't mind us... we're just marble-ing at the view! 😜 A drive through our country’s heart is one every Aussie (and visitor!) should make, especially with so many amazing stops along the way, including the #DevilsMarbles (#KarluKarlu)! ​The Devils Marbles are piles of huge, and some not so huge, red and orange-coloured granite boulders, which look as though they’ve been dropped in the middle of the outback. This conservation reserve is special to the local aboriginal groups - the Warumungu, Kaytetye, Alyawarra and Warlpiri people, who call it Karlu Karlu, which roughly translates to ‘round boulders’. These formations come into their own at sunrise and sunset, when the soft light illuminates the changing colours of the granite, transforming them from stunning pinks to bright reds. Stay overnight at the bush campground or alternatively, you can find Devils Marbles Hotel just 8 kilometres down the road. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @floboniface! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Need some inspo to get out of bed earlier? This should do the trick! @beyond925 recently captured this stunning sunrise overlooking @Darwin.Waterfront and @stokeshillwharf, #Darwin's very own leisure land with swimming lagoons, lush lawns and waterside restaurants. The NT's capital isn't just crocodiles and palm trees, Darwin offers travellers the chance to mix the outback with the city and the coast while also taking in some incredible sunrises and sunsets 💜 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Karen! ​#SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd
