About Darwin

Darwin, the capital of Australia’s Northern Territory, is an exciting multicultural city. It is vibrant and culturally diverse, providing visitors and locals alike with a quality adventurous lifestyle. We are situated on the edge of a harbour bigger than Sydney’s! Darwin is a beautiful, fascinating tropical city – boasting many cultures that prides itself in its unique and friendly laid-back lifestyle.

All year round warm weather, natural attractions such as the world heritage listed Kakadu National Park, Litchfield and Nitmiluk national parks, the Tiwi Islands and Arnhem Land make Darwin the perfect base to explore the wonders of the top end.

Since its founding in 1869, Darwin has continued to build on its rich history. World War II is a significant marker in the city’s personality with relics from this troubled time still very evident in and around the city. In 1974 Cyclone Tracy devastated Darwin. From the ruins, a modern and cosmopolitan city emerged and has made Darwin what it is today. The city continues to grow, attracting people from all over the world wanting to be part of the dynamic and progressive culture that exists.

The rich mix of nationalities has enhanced the lifestyle for all offering the first time visitor the opportunity to experience the diversity through the restaurants, markets, festivals and events that have made Darwin a unique destination.
