Situated at the very tip of the Northern Territory, this capital city is a playground for the adventurer. With over 10,000kms of uninhabited coastline and endless walking trails, Darwin is perfectly suited to the traveller who doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty. Built predominately for international trade, Darwin is actually closer to Bali than it is to Sydney, but the journey is most certainly worth it.
Whilst in Darwin make sure you check out Crocosaurus Cove which is located right in the heart of Darwin city. Here you can get up close and personal with our scaly friends and if you dare even go cage diving with some of the largest saltwater crocodiles in captivity. It’s called the “Cage of Death” experience, so we’re assuming it’s not for the faint of heart. After this adrenaline pumping experience, wind down by watching the sunset on the beach. The Top End is known to have some of the most glorious sunsets in the world and coupled with fish and chips, you can’t go wrong.
Every traveler must also experience Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks. Think cascading waterfalls, Aboriginal rock art, roaming wildlife, billabong cruises and crystal clear water swimming holes. Located around 3 hours from Darwin, take a 4WD tour and experience rugged Australia. It’s wonderful.
