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.
