Darwin

The smallest of Australia’s state capitals, Darwin has nevertheless become an attractive and important urban center, being simultaneously one of the country’s most modernized cities and a gateway to both the Top End region and South East Asia.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Nature & Wildlife Tours and Crocosaurus Cove. Explore Darwin's surroundings by going to Territory Wildlife Park (in Berry Springs), Batchelor (Litchfield National Park & Nina's Ark Wildlife Sanctuary) and Litchfield National Park (Florence Falls, Magnetic Termite Mounds, &more). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Mindil Beach, see the interesting displays at Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, race across the water with a speed boat tour, and make a splash at Darwin Waterfront.

To see maps, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Darwin trip itinerary maker app.

Kids will appreciate attractions like Uluru and Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga. And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre, don't miss a visit to Field of Light, hike along Uluru Hiking Path, and contemplate the waterfront views at Mutitjulu Waterhole.
