What to see in Darwin in a day
As a vibrant and cultural hub in Australia’s North West, Darwin is jam-packed full of things to do and see if you have a day to explore the city. Darwin is both rich in history and great wilderness experiences right on the doorstep, so whether you want to take things easy and see the sights or get your hands dirty, there’s a bit of something for everyone.
If you only have a few hours you can take a tour of the city sights, taking in the Botanic Gardens, the East Point Military Precinct, the Museum and the Art Gallery of the NT to see the Aboriginal art and NT history.
With a full day you have enough time to get out of the city to tour the breathtaking sights in the surrounding areas too, including Kakadu, Litchfield National Park, Katherine, Arnhemland and Tiwi Islands. You can swim in waterholes, discover Aboriginal art or do some crocodile spotting.
