Why Go Darwin?
You just step out the plane and you see a Spiegeltent – and this is how you enter in Darwin. Bestowed with abundance nature’s gems and its unrivaled beauty, Darwin is like a whole new world within Australia. From the mild tropical weather to the locals you will see in its streets, the capital of northern territory of Australia is an exotic destination.
The city is home to great Asian food markets, art galleries and museums. And if you are arriving between May to October, i.e. in dry months, you can tuck into one of its incredible cultural festivals. But the most exciting part of your Darwin tour begins when you hire a campervan and drive it outside the city going in the lap of the nature.
Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park, and Berry Springs Nature Reserve are the top must-see destination for travellers. These destinations are a matter of only a few hours’ drive from the city and thus most recommended for tourists on holidays.
