Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia

Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory, Australia. Situated on the Timor Sea, it is a cosmopolitan yet casual city, named after the naturalist Charles Darwin. East of Darwin, the Kakadu National Park is famous for its stunning Aboriginal rock art and its abundance of bush wildlife.

Darwin's parks, harbor, and tropical climate make it lovely for strolling during the Dry. The city heart is the Smith Street pedestrian mall. One street over is the Mitchell Street Tourist Precinct, with backpacker lodges, cheap eateries, and souvenir stores. Two streets away is the harbor front Esplanade. In the old Wharf area, a walk from town, are a couple of tourist attractions, a jetty popular with fishermen, and a working dock. Cullen Bay Marina is a hub for restaurants, cafes, and expensive boats; it's about a 25-minute walk northwest of town. Northwest of town is Fannie Bay, where you'll find the Botanic Gardens, sailing club, golf course, museum and art gallery, and casino.
