One of Australia’s best-kept secrets, Darwin is where city vibes and outback adventures go hand-in-hand. Situated along a peninsular in the Tasman Sea, Darwin is flanked by rolling oceans and striking beaches that put Australia’s better-known East Coast to shame. A gateway to three national parks, – Kakadu, Litchfield and Katherine Gorge – abundant outdoor activities will satisfy even the wildest of adventurers here. Tearing around the outback in a beaten-up 4WD, bush camping, hiking, wild swimming and croc-spotting are all part of a day’s work for tourists in the Northern Territory. So don an Akubra and channel your inner-Crocodile Dundee, Darwin is all about those iconic, once-in-a-lifetime Australian adventures.

Things to do in Darwin & Kakadu

  • Our tips for Darwin & Kakadu

    Our tips for Darwin & Kakadu
    • Cruise with crocs. Cruise through the Mary River Wetlands to spot Darwin’s deadly predators hunting in their natural habitat. Feeling gutsy? Turn it up a notch and hop in the Crocosaurus Cove’s Cage of Death, a plastic and mesh contraption that is placed in the crocodile enclosure during feeding-time!
    • Take time out at Kakadu. Quick, in-and-out Darwin day tours of the national park cater to those tight on time, but to see Kakadu in all it’s glory you should devote at least a few days here. Kakadu national park is more than 19,000 sq km (half the size of Switzerland!), and you’ll need a 4WD to access the most spectacular spots at this Darwin attraction.
    • Stay calm, drink beer. Use Darwin as your base in between jaunts to the outback. In this down-to-earth city, thongs (flip-flops) are always a go and beers are always welcome. Don’t expect any assuming airs here, only laid-back vibes and friendly faces.

    Best Time To Visit We recommend commencing your Darwin sightseeing trip during the dry season (May – October), when you can expect a more arid heat and sunny days. Although less luscious than the wet season, you’ll miss the humidity, plus all the swimming spots will be croc-free. When considering the best things to do in Darwin, visit the region in early July to coincide with the Darwin Beer Can Regatta. Held annually at Mindil Beach, this festival sees competitors construct boats out of beer cans and test their sea-worthiness.
    Getting Around Navigating this city can prove testing. Here’s our travel breakdown of the best ways to find your way through Darwin…
    • The extensive bus network costs only 3 AUD for a 3-hour ticket or 7 AUD for a day pass.
    • The relaxed pace of the city means driving is easy too – traffic and parking woes will become a distant memory here.
    • If you’re looking to rent a vehicle on your Darwin tours, we suggest hiring a 4WD for your Darwin day trips to the outback.
    Stay Safe Darwin is a safe city but when it comes to the outback, you can never be too careful. Heed our advice to avoid running into any trouble…
    • In the event of an emergency, dial 000.
    • When hiking, drink plenty of water and don’t bite off more than you can chew. Plan your hikes according to your fitness level.
    • When planning what to do in Darwin, keep in mind that you probably won’t have phone reception. We don’t recommend bush walking alone, but if you do, make sure you let someone know the route you’re taking.
    • Even in the safe season (from June to September), be cautious of box jellyfish when swimming.
