Known as part of the Top End of the Northern Territory, the state’s capital of Darwin is the ideal holiday spot for everyone from adrenaline junkies to families. Founded in 1869, the city of Darwin was originally called Palmerston, named after the then British prime minister. It wasn’t until 1911 when it was renamed to what we know today to honour Charles Darwin. The Larrakia people are the original inhabitants of the land in and around Darwin. To this day, their numbers are in the 2,000 area, and are proud and active in conserving and sharing their heritage, art, language and music. One of the first things people want to do in Darwin is get up close and personal with a crocodile—in confined safety, of course. The famous Crocosaurus Cove lets visitors swim with the crocs in what is lovingly known as the Cage of Death. 15 minutes outside of Darwin is the Corcodylus Park, which is home to more than a thousand crocodiles, as well as kangaroos, water buffalo, iguanas and snakes. We can’t speak of crocs without mentioning the ‘jumping’ crocodiles of Adelaide River, which is an estimated four crocodiles per square metre, you’re sure to see some snapping jaws. Aside from the culture and crocs, Darwin has so much more to offer. You can kayak rivers, take a wetland safari cruise, 4WD or walk national parks, catch a barramundi or watch a stunning sunrise over the harbour. While there, you should also take in the Darwin Military Museum, which gives visitors an insight into the 1942 bombing, when more than 300 Japanese bombs reigned over the Darwin Harbour. Accommodation in Darwin tends to embrace the lush oasis style, which you’ll surely appreciate when temperatures hit the 30 degrees celsius and above during most of the year. Even during winter you’re looking at around 21 to 31 degrees during the day. So, escaping to a lush resort, hotel, motel or holiday park in peak midday sun is highly recommended.
