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.

Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 7th (Wed) at Darwin Waterfront. Spend the 13th (Tue) on the water with a fishing tour. Next up on the itinerary: make a splash at Wave Lagoon, get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, identify plant and animal life at Crocosaurus Cove, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Crocodylus Park.
