Darwin Holiday

What are the best places to visit in Darwin?

It can be really nice to just amble around the streets when you're in a new destination, but sometimes it's a good idea to form a plan. Grab your schedule — we have some cool ideas for your forthcoming Darwin holiday.

Even on a wet day, it's worthwhile going for a walk through Bicentennial Park. Just put up your umbrella and drink in the fresh earthy smell. Visitors in this destination have a great range of options. It's time to get wild! Take the whole family to Crocosaurus Cove and watch the kids' eyes come alive as they rub shoulders with some of the wonders of the animal kingdom. Still got time on your hands? If only these walls could talk! Picture the power grabs and heated arguments that have happened at Government House. Catch a tour and get an up-close-and-personal look at this significant building.

What types of accommodation options are available in Darwin?

A comfy pillow is all that will matter after a full day of adventures in the state capital. Darwin boasts 68 accommodation, so you'll have ample options. Whether you're seeking cheap holidays or luxury getaways, Expedia can help.

If the thought of a well-stocked minibar and a swanky bathtub appeals to you, grab a drink and bathe in luxury at the Darwin Waterfront Luxury Suites (19 Kitchener Drive) or the Beachlife Holiday Apartments (27 Woods Street). The Darwin YHA - Melaleuca on Mitchell (52 Mitchell St) and the Frogshollow Backpackers (27 Lindsay Street) both have good guest reviews if you'd like something cheaper.

Is there an airport in Darwin?

The airport is seldom the most enjoyable moment of your getaway, but there's nothing like the excitement of knowing that your trip to Darwin is a mere plane ride away! Once you unbuckle your seatbelt at Darwin International Airport (DRW), you'll be 5 miles from the middle of town.
