Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: If you go to darwin, do a tour to Kakadu Nationalpark and Litchfield Nationalpark. I did both and i especially enjoyed a two day tour to Kakadu Nationalpark. I did that with "Kakadu Dreams" and i loved it: beautiful landscapes, good weather, nice swimming spots and I had an amazing guide. I learned so much about the park and nature itself during these two days! The prices might seem expensive, but I think it is totally worth it! Do it!

Liked: Many excursions to the to big national Parks are possible! Darwin itself is not a city where you can do a lot of sightseeing.

Disliked: You really have to get used to the climate in Darwin and the Northern territory! It is incredibly hot and humid. Which is great if you can handle that :)

Trip Type:
Events / festivals

Customer Travel Tip: Come during the dry season, go to lots of Festival events, eat at Festival Park. See at least one sunset. Go to the markets - once is enough for Mindil, the others are lots of fun with good food ,juices and coffee available. Make sure you get to the museum at least once, and stroll the length of the Esplanade on the harbour side to see all the memorial plaques to those who served in wartime and the charming ceramic tiles acknowledging the wide range of people who have contributed to the development of NT. Bring lots of money

Liked: The weather and the festival.

Disliked: The high cost of accommodation. The confusion about taking a drink from festival park into Browns Mart courtyard. The punitive provision of areas for smokers at Festival Park
