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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Mindil Beach and Wave Lagoon. Change things up with these side-trips from Darwin: Territory Wildlife Park (in Berry Springs), Litchfield National Park (Florence Falls, Magnetic Termite Mounds, &more) and Batchelor (Litchfield National Park & Nina's Ark Wildlife Sanctuary). There's much more to do: get interesting insight from Tours, walk around Leanyer Recreation Park, identify plant and animal life at Crocosaurus Cove, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Crocodylus Park.

To see reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Darwin itinerary maker.

In October, daytime highs in Darwin are 39°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.

Please note that visitors are no longer allowed to trek up Uluru.

Located right in the center of Australia, the national park boasts perhaps the country's most iconic natural symbol and a sacred place for the region's indigenous people--as well as Kata Tjuta, a collection of 36 red rocks forming an equally distinctive sight.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park is known for nature, museums, and outdoors. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga, trek along Kuniya Walk, admire the verdant scenery at Valley of the Winds, and get engrossed in the history at Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre.

To find traveler tips, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park day trip app.

Traveling from Darwin in October, expect slightly colder with lows of 18°C in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
