  •   Darwin - Attractions

•   Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory
The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory features one of the best collections of Aboriginal art and artefacts in the world. There is also a Cyclone Tracy exhibit, which relives the devastation caused on Christmas Day 1974. Admission is free.

•   Indo Pacific Marine
Indo Pacific Marine at Stokes Hill Wharf features live coral and the many creatures to be found on a coral reef. Guided and specially packaged tours are available.

•   Australian Pearling Exhibition
Also at Stokes Hill Wharf is the Australian Pearling Exhibition, which gives an insight into the local pearling history, together with details explaining the formation of pearls.

•   Crocodiles
Get up close and personal with that feared prehistoric creature, the crocodile. Crocodylus Park close to Darwin is a research centre, while the Crocodile Farm is Australia`s first and largest crocodile farm. Either location will give you a crocodile experience to remember.

•   Esplanade Walk
Take a walk along the Esplanade, admiring the old houses. Bicentennial Park on the foreshore has walking tracks and great views from the lookouts. The view at sunset is incomparable.

•   Aquascene at Doctors Gully
To get close to nature, go and feed the fish at Aquascene at Doctors Gully. The fish are fed regularly and will come up close - they may even nibble your fingers.

•   Mindil Beach Sunset Market
Visit Mindil Beach Sunset Market which is held on Thursday and Sunday from around 5:30pm. The market features a superb array of food at affordable prices. Why not buy dinner here and sit on the beach to eat it.

•   Adelaide River Jumping Crocodile Cruise
A 1.5 hour tour conducted on the Adelaide River Queen allows you to see a sight unique to the Northern Territory. Watch the crocodiles as they slide in from the banks of the river, barely making a ripple in the water, then leap into the air to seize their prey as it is held out from the boat. It is a truly amazing sight.

•   Territory Wildlife Park
The Territory Wildlife Park is located 45 minutes south of Darwin. This popular destination features a train to take you between exhibits (or you can walk). There is a wide range of Australian native and introduced species, and a feature of the park is its magnificent bird aviaries.

•   Harbour Cruises
For a different view of Darwin, take a harbour cruise - sunset cruises are available most days. Alternatively, why not try your hand at barramundi fishing. These fish can grow to over a metre in length, and there are many charter boats and fishing tours available.
