About Darwin

Darwin is the home of the Larrakia people and the capital city of the Northern Territory, Australia.

Darwin is a small but vibrant tropical city with a population of just over 130,000. It hosts thriving evening markets, great food, inspiring art and culture and is the gateway to adventure! Less than three hours from Darwin city is the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, covering nearly 20,000 square kilometres. The Tiwi Islands, known for its thriving Aboriginal arts and culture, is a short flight away and Litchfield National Park with stunning waterfalls surrounded by monsoonal vine forests is close. There is so much to do in Darwin and its surrounds, and the ecology is worth the visit!

Darwin has a tropical savanna climate. Day time temperatures in July are pleasantly warm (around 30 degrees Celsius) and it is generally dry.
