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.

#Uluru has been hit with some wild weather recently, including a supercell that passed right over it! It's estimated that only 1% of travellers to this legendary monolith get to see it when it rains, and the rock is enveloped in waterfalls 💦 Check out our IG story for more!

Welcome to Little Bondi - one of #EastArnhemLand's many hidden gems. The north-eastern corner of the NT is home to numerous stretches of white sand bordered by the vivid blue waters of the Arafura Sea and Gulf of Carpentaria. There are several stunning beaches within a relatively short driving distance from Nhulunbuy (Gove), the region's main township, where travellers can spend their days fishing, camping and exploring the diverse landscape. Not far from Little Bondi (Baringura), you'll also find Turtle Beach (Ngumuy) and Macassan Beach (Garanhan). Make sure you look into travel permits with the Northern Land Council or the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation before your trip 👍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @_markfitz! #SeeAustralia

We've got tickets for a billion-star experience, keen?! An easy day trip from #AliceSprings, Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve is renowned for its sandstone bluffs and cliffs with different bands of coloured rock. Best accessed by a four-wheel drive vehicle, this lesser known geological wonder is particularly stunning in the early morning light or late afternoon sun when it changes from ochre red to orange and purple. However, if you're staying overnight in the campground, make sure you stick your head out of the tent during the night - with no artificial light nearby, you'll be able to see the stars like never before ✨ Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @carmenhuter! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Come for the swimming, stay for the photo opportunities 👌 There’s nothing better than relaxing in a natural spa, and they don’t come much better than the free hot springs in the town of #Katherine. Crystal clear and luke warm, surrounded by lush pandanus and monsoon forest, the pools are a favourite spot for locals and travellers.  Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @prends_tes_tongs_on_se_casse! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

As darkness falls and #Uluru is thrown into silhouette, the #FieldofLight illuminates ✨ The exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara, is Bruce Munro's largest work to date, with more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres. The installation covers an area of more than seven football fields and invites visitors to wander through the network of pathways and watch this fantasy garden softly change colour from sunset to sunrise. The Field of Light is running until 31 December, 2020. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @aroundq! #SeeAustralia #ExploreUluru #RedCentreNT

Witness the magic of #Kakadu National Park from above 🚁 From this spectacular vantage point you’ll see the most astonishing side of @Australia's largest national park... ancient sandstone plateaus, sheer escarpments, endless savannah forest, white sand beaches, winding rivers and expanses of floodplains. One of Kakadu's most impressive waterfalls, Twin Falls is a sight to behold year round whether it's in full flow or reduced to a trickle during the drier months. With the wet season fast approaching and ground access soon closing, a scenic flight is a must over the summer months - the mighty rock formations and surging water make for unforgettable viewing! Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @jewelszee! #SeeAustralia #SeeKakadu #DoKakadu

Just a hop, skip and a jump from #AliceSprings, you'll find our outback version of a 'beach' - Ormiston Gorge! Out of all the gaps and gorges in the West MacDonnell Ranges, it has to be one of the most impressive 😍Comprised of orange and red quartzite, and formed by massive geological forces, it's not your typical swimming spot... but that's what makes it so special! With summer fast approaching, we'll be grabbing a picnic rug and our bathers and heading here - you can even pick up a coffee from the kiosk. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @savvy_social.  #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Going, going... gone! #Uluru was hit by a passing storm yesterday arvo - at one point the rain was so heavy it almost disappeared from sight! Ten minutes later the clouds cleared... just in time for #sunset 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @yo_hisa0425! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

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, 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, @cbowles14!  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd
