Travel Tips to Darwin (DRW)
Attractions in Darwin
Darwin is the largest city in Australia’s Northern Territory. At the same time, it is the capital of the region and is home to a population of more than 121,000. Darwin was founded in 1869 and has been repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt over the centuries. Thanks to its tropical climate, the city is usually sunny and dry during May to September, although the climate never affects tourism as it only rises to 33 degrees, even on hot days. Today, the city is known as the gateway to Asia and offers a variety of recreational options to its visitors. Book tickets to Darwin with FlyDoha and enjoy tours to the nearby Litchfield National Park or the Kakadu National Park.
Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory
Not far from the port of Darwin in the district of Fannie Bay, lies the most important museum in the region – The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. It is known for housing the most extensive collection of Aboriginal art and crafts in the Pacific region. The bill for construction of a museum was already passed in 1964, although the art was originally kept in Darwin’s Old Town Hall. Unfortunately, this building was destroyed by a cyclone in 1974 and so the current museum building was constructed. The finished building was opened in 1981 and only 11 years later, the museum has been expanded. Now the museum also features a well-stocked library and exhibitions on maritime history. The museum is open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Monday to Friday and 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on weekends.
Darwin’s Botanical Gardens
Another highlight of Darwin is its Botanical Gardens in the north of the Fannie Bay district. The botanical gardens are more than a century old. It is home to numerous remarkable plant species. The gardens are open daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Here, you can find more than 400 species of palm trees. Furthermore, the botanical house, a miniature rainforest, equipped with a waterfall and a pond. And its wonderful orchid garden makes this botanical garden complete.
Experience Natural Scrubland at the East Point Reserve
The East Point Reserve is just 6 km away from the centre of Darwin. A visit to this nature reserve is especially worthwhile as more than 2,000 wallabies, small kangaroos live in the park. There is a small saltwater lake at East Point Reserve (Lake Alexander) where you can swim throughout the year. A trail also runs along the north coast, where you can get a magnificent view of Darwin and the bay! Book a flight to Darwin with FlyDoha and explore natural Australia!
