Take a Darwin Holiday Letting for the Perfect Family Getaway
Situated on the far northern tip of the country, Darwin is Australia's only tropical capital city. Many different types of holiday rentals are available here. Stay in a modern apartment amid the city's vibrant streets or opt for a beachside villa where you can enjoy Darwin's great outdoors right on your doorstep. Darwin offers visitors a fantastic balance of city adventures and outdoor pursuits, and all the family will love tucking into fish and chips, catching a film at the local cinema, and exploring the terrain of neighbouring Kakadu National Park.
Darwin's Culinary Scene
Thanks to its location in Australia's tropical Northern Territory, a wide array of fruits, vegetables, and nuts are cultivated in Darwin's vicinity. Stroll the bustling Parap Market with the locals to sample regional produce, enjoy a freshly brewed coffee, and shop for arts and crafts. While the restaurant scene in Darwin is diverse, dining out is always relaxed. Knuckey Street and Mitchell Street are the central hubs for bars and restaurants, but if you're looking for a quick lunch, then the Central Business District has plenty of options. The Coffee Club Darwin Waterfront is an excellent place to start the day with some top class brews and fantastic views.
Aussie food is heavily influenced by Asian cuisine. Hanuman Restaurant cooks up authentic plates at budget prices. East West Restaurant is also Asian-inspired, and a little more upmarket. For a hearty Australian barbecue-style meal head over to Redsalt Bar and Grill. They serve fantastic premium steaks and freshly grilled seafood in a bright and contemporary setting, and, while not a budget option, it's worth every dollar.
Arts and Culture in Darwin
Historical attractions are plentiful in Darwin and the Darwin Wharf Precinct is an excellent place to start. The wharf was bombed during the Second World War but you can still explore many intriguing landmarks. The Adelaide River War Cemetery is another moving reminder of Australia's sometimes overlooked history, which remembers those involved in the war.
To discover more about the region's more recent history, head to the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. The exhibits here cover everything from Aboriginal cultural heritage to the state's maritime archaeology. Admission to the museum is free and there are also regular classes and workshops, as well as a cafe, making for a fantastic family-friendly day out. You can also tour Parliament House free of charge, though tours of the building must be booked in advance of your arrival.
After Dark in Darwin
Darwin's tropical climate lends itself to late night dining and al fresco cocktails. Luck Bat Cafe is tucked away behind Nightcliff Village Shop but its charming courtyard is the ideal place to enjoy an evening glass of wine and light snack. Darwin Ski Club enjoys a premium location on the waterfront where you can enjoy the sunset with a chilled glass of beer. This casual beach bar has live music at the weekends and serves high-quality pub food with the bad boy burger gaining something of a reputation.
Browns Mart Theatre is a former historical building which today reigns as one of the regions most prolific performance venues. As well as staging a range of productions, it also boasts a charming bar where you can enjoy a drink before or after the show. The Deckchair Cinema screens
Exploring the Northern Territory
Darwin is awash in stunning parks and gardens. Some of the city-centric highlights include Bicentennial Park (overlooking the spectacular harbour) and the Charles Darwin National Park, an area inhabited by Aboriginal peoples for many thousands of years. Darwin is also known as the gateway to the rest of the state, and as such, natural beauty awaits those who venture beyond the city limits.
Kakadu National Park, the largest in Australia, is famous for its Aboriginal rocks, of which Nourlangie Rock and Ubirr are the most notable and not to be missed. If you really want to get off the beaten track then Tiwi Islands are the place to head. The islands offer a rich insight into the native population and their natural beauty is quite spectacular. Almost completely undeveloped, the Aboriginal way of life still prevails over much of the islands and their communities today.
