Walk Darwin

Welcome to Walk Darwin; a locally-owned family business specialising in small group sightseeing walking tours of Darwin City and the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens.

Your hosts, Nerida and John Hart, and together with a passionate team of local guides invite you to discover a taste of what makes Darwin tick, visiting iconic locations and regaling stories of Darwin’s frontier past.

We provide visitors with a local’s perspective of life in Darwin today and what makes Territorians in the Top End a unique breed.

With practical city design, Darwin is one of the best cities in Australia to explore by foot. We walk all year round in our vibrant city, through all seasons, adapting to the needs of our guests during the Tropical Summer when the pace of life slows and the energetic drama of the natural environment heralds a wondrous change.

Walking and comfort is what we’re all about. A change in pace, a stop in the shade or a helping hand where needed, makes the world of difference to our guests and we love nothing better than to spend time with happy travellers.

Come and enjoy our Territory Hospitality.

    Darwin Heritage Walk

    From the destruction caused by the WWII bombings and Cyclone Tracy, Darwin has risen and you'll discover many of the remaining buildings, some of which have been painstakingly reconstructed.


    See the Old Police Station and Courthouse, Brown's Mart and the Old Palmerston Town Hall ruins, and enjoy manicured tropical gardens as your route meanders through city streets and across the paths of pioneers.


    There are many hidden treasures to see on foot when you explore with a local.

    Meet the Plants Walk

    Your guide will introduce you to some of the significant trees and tropical plantings within the Gardens, as you walk between the different environments. From ancient cycads to colourful crotons, hidden garden rooms to the rock covered Madagascar Garden, and lush, historic Heritage Lawn, the diversity has to be seen to be believed.


    Along the way there may be a chance sighting of birds and seasonal flowers. Remember to bring your camera.

    Ship to Shore

    This 2-hour walking tour will uncover the hidden treasures of Darwin city, to then allow further exploration at your leisure.


    The relaxed walk starts at the Cruise Ship Terminal and departure time is dependent on the scheduled arrival time of each ship.


    Hear of WWII bombings and Cyclone Tracy and discover many of the remaining buildings such as the old Court House and Police Station, Browns Mart and the Old Palmerston Town Hall ruins, all of which have been painstakingly reconstructed. Pass by Government House, Parliament House and the Supreme Court on your journey through the streets of this modern tropical city. Along the way, your guide will share their passion for the town they call home.


    Your tour will conclude at the Visitor Information Centre where shuttle buses depart regularly for the journey back to your ship, or you can walk back along the Smith Street pathway.

    Tropical Light Artscapes

    It’s a time of year when nature is ever present and life in the Territory slows to enjoy the rejuvenation that the wet season brings. We explore the character of life in Darwin through art as we casually tour the back lanes of the CBD where huge street murals adorn walls of city buildings, with plenty of rest stops to admire the view.


    Our tour will take in the CBD light-art illuminations as part of world-renowned artist, Bruce Munro’s Tropical Light exhibition; his first city-wide light exhibition in Australia. We’ll learn about the inspiration for his creations and the stories which connect the exhibits to Darwin, together with unique artworks by local artisans. Between a cool tropical ice-cream, one way to enjoy Darwin’s tropical summer, and an ice-cold drink there's an exclusive opportunity to talk with one of the artists or exhibition ambassadors.

    Walk the Botanic Gardens

    See legacies left by prominent Curators, including significant trees and heritage features. Along the way you'll be introduced to many tropical plants that grow in these parkland gardens, each with their own interesting story. Keep an eye out for colourful birdlife, stunning flowers and majestic trees.


    This guided walk is for those looking to truly experience Darwin's botanic garden.

    WWII Reflections Walk

    19 February, 1942.


    World War II reaches mainland Australia and the northern city of Darwin is bombed.


    Move forward to today and it’s Thursday, when your guide will take you back to that WWII era on a 2-hour walk through the historic quarter of the city. Hear stories of that fateful day as you meander past historic buildings of the time, that have been re-built to provide lasting memories of life in the north during the War.


    This tour departs on a Thursday only, in memory of that fateful day in 1942.
