New to Darwin?

From the sparkling harbour and WWII history to the city's Asian-influenced food and tropical outdoor lifestyle, Darwin is an adventurers' paradise. Local Markets are a big part of Darwin’s personality. Known as the laksa capital of Australia, you’ll find plenty of Market stalls serving up the spicy noodle soup. If you’re looking for Australian fare, look no further than the local barramundi fish or even a crocodile dish when dining out.

If you like a good storm, then Darwin is the place to see the legendary wet season weather. Do as the locals do and watch these spectacular light shows at one of the cafes along the waterfront, watching the dark clouds roll in and the sky light up. It’s one of Mother Nature’s best free shows in the Territory.
