Gateway to the Northern Territory

Darwin City lies at the centre of the Northern Territory's capital city and is a great central point of accommodation for holiday makers looking to experience the magic and wonder of Australia's north. The city has been almost entirely rebuilt twice (once due to Japanese air strikes in World War II, the other by Cyclone Tracy in the 1970s), giving the region an exceedingly modern feel. Considered Australia's "Gateway to Asia," the city also showcases a wide-ranging blend of historic Australian, Asian, and contemporary influences.

What Should I Expect From the Weather?

The weather in Darwin is warm year-round, with an average temperature of 32 degrees Celsius. Many consider Darwin's dry (April to September) season the best time to travel to the region, since the weather is beautifully predictable: sunny skies, warm temperatures, and not a drop of rain in sight. However, though the city's wet season (October to March) is unpredictable, it doesn't guarantee wet or stormy skies for your entire holiday. In fact, the wet season is a lovely time to see the city without the tourist crowds or on-season cost.

Getting Around Darwin City

Darwin's central business district is compact and easily navigable by foot. If you'd prefer, you can also pay a daily fee to hop on and off one of the city's many tour buses, which circle the city's attractions. Travellers can also walk the Esplanade that circles the city and offers stunning views of the harbour. 

Darwin's Many Sights and Attractions

Start your trip by strolling through the city centre, shops, and waterfront to see the sights: it's a lovely place to explore on foot. The George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens make for a fabulous afternoon amidst lush flowers, palms, and every specie of baobab tree in the world - best of all, entry is completely free. After you've had your fill of flora, it's time to see the fauna at the Territory Wildlife Park, where you can walk or take a free shuttle through six kilometres of wildlife-filled parkland.

For something wilder, head to Crocodylus Park and Zoo, where you'll see exotic species of wildlife like lions and Bengal tigers in addition to the park's main attraction: the crocodiles. Attend one of the feeding sessions or (for the truly brave of heart) be lowered into the crocodile enclosure in the Cage of Death, where nothing but a four-sided Perspex "cage" stands between you and the angry crocs. 

Live Like a Darwin Local

One of the best ways to see the city is to live like a local. If you're looking for Darwin accommodation, then a Darwin holiday rental can be a great option with rentals sprinkled throughout the city, ranging from luxury apartments to cozy cottage retreats. Darwin City accommodation gives you peace and privacy, while putting you right at the heart of the action, letting you experience the sights and sounds of the city firsthand. Some Darwin City holiday rentals are more like hotels, with continental breakfasts and full-time staff, while others are more traditional rental homes with an off-site owner. No matter where you stay in Darwin City, you're sure to be in the heart of all the city has to offer.

Immaculate accommodation with everything you need

5 of 5
Stayed with my husband and two dogs and were all made very welcome upon our arrival. Room very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Huge space downstairs for us to use including pool. Secure area for dogs to stay and safe areas to walk nearby. Would definitely stay again if in Darwin. Only 5 mins drive from CBD. Wish we could stayed longer. Thank you!
