Charles Darwin National Park

If you don't have the time to visit the larger (but much farther) Litchfield or Kakadu National Parks, Charles Darwin is a convenient alternative. Located a short distance from the city centre (just south of the airport), the area is one of the country's most important wetlands, showcasing 36 mangrove species, as well as holding great aboriginal and historical significance.

Do & See

Darwin is a youthful city with a young and vibrant population, and it is famously packed with young travellers during the dry season. Outdoor living is the norm and outdoor activities and adventures are the main attractions, with breathtaking natural parks in close proximity. Central Darwin is compact and easily explored on foot, although the suburbs are somewhat spread out.
