Top 10 Things to Do in Darwin

top 10 things to do in Darwin, Australia


Located at the southern edge of Australia’s Top End, Darwin is a small but vibrant town where rich Aboriginal heritage, strong Asian culture, and the Aussie Outback lifestyle intersect. If you are the type of person who enjoy outdoor adventures, and want something different from the usual city holidays, Darwin is certainly the place for you. Not only does the Territory boast some of the planet’s most incredible wildlife, but the “tamed” parts of the city also offer excellent restaurants, classy bars and elegant accommodation.

You may have booked a motorhome hire in Darwin, what next? We’ve compiled some of the region’s best attractions for your guide. Here’s our list of top 10 things to do in Darwin:

Litchfield National Park – Day Trip

The largest falls in Litchfield are Wangi Falls. Here you can swim and snorkel in a large pool set in a rainforest.

In the wet season, the flow of water is awesome. The falls aren’t accessible all year round, and swimming is sometimes prohibited after heavy rain due to powerful currents in the pool.

A nature trail leads from the camping and BBQ area to the top of the falls and back down to the car park. […]

Mindil Beach Markets

The Mindil Beach Market really is almost a compulsory must do when in Darwin – and it was so good that Lady Gaw and I braved the hoards of tourists and locals and went there twice – and both on the very popular Thursday late afternoon and into the evening. (Market is also open Sunday afternoon/evening). […]

Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory

The Maritime Gallery at the Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory is a collection of the different types of boats found in South East Asia.

Included are original pearling luggers, refugee boats and illegal fishing vessels. There are also smaller craft such as canoes and catamarans. […]

Jumping Crocodile Cruise

This is a worthwhile day out while in Darwin and is certainly a “close up” for anybody that has never seen crocodiles THIS CLOSE..The river cruise guarantees that you will see many large crocs and they certainly do that….The tour not only includes the river cruise but also stops at Fogg Dam “wetlands” for a look at an abundance of birdlife..and a visit to the “Window on the Wetlands” centre is most interesting with a detailed look at the local wildlifes ecological interaction with all the wetlands…there is also a great opportunity to handle some really large and small python (snakes).. I was more than happy with this day out. […]

Kakadu National Park – Day Trip

Kakadu is nature at your door according to the travel brochures. It was a long drive to find the door I might tell you…300k each way so you could even say you had been there and seen the door from the outside! […]

Bicentennial Park

I’d rate strolling through Bicentennial Park as not just enjoyable and relaxing, but also as surprisingly educational if you take the time to look at the various monuments. So stay with me while I cover some of the more significant parts in the next few tips – should you be using this as a guide for a visit of your own, the trip starts from the northern end and works toward the main city area. Once there you can reward yourself with a cool drink! […]

Crocodylus Park

Located a short distance from Darwin, Crocodylus Park is home to over a thousand crocodiles, as well as other wildlife. The park homes crocodiles from little baby hatchlings up to some of the really big adults of the crocodile world. […]

Berry Springs Nature Park

These are located South of Darwin. Follow the Stuart Highway for 50kms, then turn right into Cox Peninsula road, the Berry springs are about 10ks along here. Located on the Berry Creek, there are three small pools and a small waterfall.

This is another shady oasis, lovely springs, fish in the water, a nice cool spot on a hot day. […]

Territory Wildlife Park

This park is located right next to the Berry springs nature reserve. The park covers quite a big area, so make sure you wear Sunburn cream, as there is quite a bit to see in the sun. It showcases the animals that you would find in the Northern Territory and there are shows as well. There are lots of walking tracks, and a free shuttle train that runs continuously around the 4km trail, you will probably need it in the heat, we did. There is a cafe, picnic area, and drink machines are located throughout the park. […]

George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens

The paths from the Rainforest Loop either go north to the Shade Garden and Tiwi Wet Forest, or to the west to the Tropical Savannah and back to the northwest entrance. I was running out of time, so I went to the Tropical Savannah. The Adansonia (baobab or boab) trees and the Moringa tree were really unique looking. I did not know about Moringa trees until writing this tip. They are an amazing food source and have medicinal properties too. From the signboard and knowing where I took the picture, I think the second picture here is of the Moringa drouhardii near the “Y” in the paths at the top of the signboard. […]
