Darwin Travel Guide

Tropical, hot and humid Darwin in northern Australia is closer to Singapore than it is to Melbourne. A pleasantly laid-back and multicultural city, food is high on the agenda here, with a number of good restaurants around Mitchell street and the marina of Cullen Bay. If you though Aussie barbies are good, get ready for more sophisticated culinary delights. Outdoor activities are also prominent, with opportunities to tour fish and crocodiles farms, enjoy a river cruise, hike through the Mary River National Park or stroll around the botanical gardens. Crocs and the deadly box jellyfish will be your neighbors in the waters so make sure you stay alert unless you want to do some sightseeing in a hospital down under.
