Australia’s Tropical Paradise

Darwin is Australia’s only tropical state capital and stands as the gateway to the Top End’. Originally a frontier outpost, Darwin retains a wonderful sense of distance from the rest of the country and feels distinctly exotic compared to the metropolitan glitz of Sydney and Melbourne.

Darwin is all about nature and the great outdoors. From the Charles Darwin National Park on the city’s doorstep to the massive saltwater crocs of Crocosaurus Cove, visitors are never far from unforgettable experiences unique to the Northern Territory.

However, Darwin is not all outback and wildlife but offers plenty in the way of gourmet food and drink too. Darwin’s restaurants combine the highest quality cuisine with stunning locations and views — don’t miss Peewee’s at the Point for great modern Australian food in a stunning waterfront location, or Hanuman for a culinary road trip through South Asia. Cafe culture is also alive and well, with tables spilling out into the street in many neighbourhoods. Coffee lovers and bean addicts will be delighted with the offerings at Fresh Point Co. and Kopi Stop.

All in all, Darwin’s blend of laid-back frontier living, tropical perfection and cosmopolitan charm makes it the perfect destination for any traveller, and a great starting point for a trip to Top End.
