Despite the many scars that history has put on it, Darwin has survived as a beautiful oasis with a solid resolve and a relaxed attitude. When you visit Darwin, you don’t just experience a fascinating Australian city, but you also walk into the gateway of Asia.
Multicultural and adventurous, Darwin will leave you amazed. This harbor town has undergone a major facelift but has retained its casual and lounged vibe. For long, the northern capital of Australia has been a mere launch pad to some of Australia’s top national parks. But tourists are now curious about the rich world war heritage and understated enthusiasm of Darwin. Darwin is a melting pot of sorts; it is steeped with history and culture, assimilating a variety of races and classes into its warm embrace.
Take a peep into aboriginal history and tread up close with crocodiles; you’ll be glad that you stopped over at this harbor of fun!
Essential travel information and Darwin tips for your visit
- The road between Darwin and Broome is one of the longest stretches of uninhabited land in the world. Take a road trip into Australia’s past on this epic journey that crosses the absolute must-see Kakadu National Park and miles of crocodile infested roads. Do take a buddy along!
- Do take appropriate weather precautions when you visit Darwin. The Dry season would require drinking lots of water and wearing summer clothes. A visit in the Wet season would require you to have appropriate rainwear.
- Bring along lots of Mosquito repellent to save you from both Dengue-Mosquitoes and Sand flies.
- Be aware that you are in a area that is full of crocodiles. Do not camp near the water’s edge or try deadly stunts close to the river. Read up about safe swimming areas beforehand.
