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.
Attractions like Nature & Wildlife Tours and Crocosaurus Cove make great kid-friendly stops. There's still lots to do: make a splash at Wave Lagoon, take in the waterfront at Darwin Wharf Precinct, enjoy the sand and surf at Mindil Beach, and take an in-depth tour of RFDS Darwin Tourist Facility.

To see other places to visit, maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Darwin travel planner .
