Experience Australia’s History
Mindil Beach Walk
The beach is adjacent to Darwin Botanic Gardens, an attraction that is most scenic during the wet season. The garden is filled with abundant flowers and greenery, with flora that includes mangroves, frangipani, and orchids.
World War II Monuments
As a strategic defense point, Darwin offers plenty of sites for history buffs. If you are more interested in the local culture, sampling freshly prepared regional dishes, or shopping during your visit, the local markets are an essential stop.
After the midday showers, head to the Wharf for your evening meal, and spend a few minutes watching the fish swim from the adjoining dock.
