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.

This little guy sure knows his best angles 😍 @mandihefflinger described her second visit to @TheKangarooSanctuary “just as magical as the first." There’s no better way to meet @Australia's most famous locals than a sunset tour at the sanctuary where you can cuddle and feed a baby kangaroo. The main mission for the sanctuary, based just outside of #AliceSprings, is to rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned baby kangaroos back into the wild. Those who can’t be return to the wild are released into their 188 acre property. Tours run from Tuesday to Friday. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, Mandi. #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT

Located just an hour and a half from #Darwin, Florence Falls boasts its own plunge pool set under cascading water surrounded by monsoon forest 👌 After a refreshing dip at this little piece of paradise, wander up to the viewing platform high above the falls and take in the view of the valley and waterhole below. Due to it's accessibility, #Litchfield National Park is the locals' pick for a camping weekend or an adventurous day out bush walking and swimming - not to mention its pretty easy on the eye 😍 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @insta_ines_travels!  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

Wow. Just WOW 🙌 The ancient red rock formations of #KataTjuta (#TheOlgas) rise seemingly out of nowhere from the dusty land. From a distance it may look like one single rock, but it's actually a group of 36 domes that sit shoulder to shoulder and form a spectacular and unique configuration of deep valleys and steep gorges spread over more than 20 kilometres (12.4 miles) Kata Tjuta is a Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal word meaning "many heads". Roughly 35 kilometres west of #Uluru, you can see them up close along one of the walking trails or from a helicopter on a scenic flight. Kata Tjuta looks particularly beautiful at sunset 🧡 Please note: @saltywings obtained special permission from @seeuluru and Traditional Owners to use drones within the national park.

Make sure you get a window seat on your way to #Darwin 😉 The NT's unhurried capital is well known for its balmy nights, colourful characters and outdoor adventures. As well as markets, crocodiles and cruises, you'll find strong Aboriginal culture and a number of national parks right on your door step. Perched on a harbour five times the size of Sydney's and home to some of @Australia's most instagrammable sunsets, Darwin is the ultimate tropical escape 🙌 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @sparetimelife! #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

It’s not hard to see why Nitmiluk (#Katherine) Gorge is a Top End must do! The gorge-ous views and breathtaking walking tracks will impress even the most adventurous of hearts, or maybe you’ll choose to take it easy on a boat cruise with @NitmilukTours. Open year round, the region is home to some of the most stunning gorge scenery in the NT. Consisting of 13 separate gorges, this maze of waterways stretches for 12 kilometres and extends more than 70 metres high. Our tip: check out Baruwei lookout at sunrise or sunset!

The iconic red rock, #Uluru has to be seen to be believed. At sunrise and sunset it’s radiance is unlike anything else, surrounded by the dreamy colours of the desert sky. There are a number of experiences that take you right up close, including the 10.6 kilometre Base Walk. As the name suggests, the trail circles the entire base of this ochre-coloured monolith and takes roughly 3.5 hours if you do the whole thing. If you're not keen on doing it on foot, you can hire a bike from @outbackcycling or join a segway tour with @ulurusegwaytours.

We're coming to you from Wangi Falls where it's wet, wild and wonderful! With a stunning cliff face, an emerald-toned plunge pool and a cafe on-site, there's every reason to sit back and enjoy your surroundings. #Litchfield National Park may be a fraction of the size of Kakadu, but when it comes to adventure opportunities, this national park has it in spades! While the falls are currently closed for swimming due to flooding, this impressive sight is still well worth a visit over the tropical summer. However, if you're keen for a dip within the park, Florence Falls and Buley Rockhole are open for swimming 👌💦 Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @mattyparry96!  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

Sending you a postcard from paradise, also known as #EastArnhemLand 🍃 This is Lonely Beach, a very beautiful (and real!) place that you can explore on a tour with aboriginal-owned organisation @Lirrwi Tourism. They offer day and multi-day guided tours into the remote Yolngu Homelands, departing from #Nhulunbuy (#Gove) between April and October. You'll get to see how the world's oldest living culture still does things today - from traditional spear fishing to gathering of bush foods. East Arnhem Land is only a short flight from #Darwin or can be accessed via the Central Arnhem Road.  Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @haylsa!  #SeeAustralia #TourismTopEnd

We definitely don’t take for granted, or should we say ‘granite’ the fact that we have the unbelievable #DevilsMarbles in the Northern Territory.  Karlu Karlu, as they’re called by the traditional owners, were in fact formed naturally, slowly eroding over millions of years into their strange and sometimes gravity-defying shapes. Follow the walkways and find out via the information boards how the granite formations have withstood the forces of wind and rain, unlike the surrounding sandstone. These geological wonders are located just an hour drive from #TennantCreek. Cheers for tagging #NTaustralia, @mwjhvisuals! #SeeAustralia #RedCentreNT
