Things to see and do in Darwin

The capital city of the Northern Territories, Darwin sits beside the Timor Sea and is the perfect place to start your journey across the Top End of Australia, due to its strong Aboriginal heritage, beautiful beaches and buzzing nightlife. Plus it's only a short flight to Bali, Indonesia.

Start exploring Darwin by visiting its sun-kissed beaches including Casuarina Beach and Mindil Beach. Just be mindful that Darwin waters are notorious for saltwater crocs! Join the locals, who love to pass the steamy days fishing (barramundi is often the catch of the day) or visit one of the local parks like the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens or the Bicentennial Park.

If you've got a bit of time up your sleeve, put your foot to the pedal in your Thrifty hire car and zoom to some of Australia's most iconic natural sites, such as the Kakadu National Park around 3 hours' drive from Darwin - home to ancient Aboriginal rock art, lush wetlands and one third of Australia's bird species.
