Australian Hand-Crafted Journeys


Gateway to the Top End

Darwin is the multi-cultural capital of Australia’s most Northern region​

Famous in Australia for its laid-back lifestyle, Darwin is the perfect destination to relax and unwind. With the Dry Season bringing perfect weather, May to October is the best time to visit.

Darwin is a fantastic mix of traditional indigenous culture and modern Australian culture, with over 50 nationalities making up its 10,000-person population. This has created an incredible hub of diverse dining options, with many influenced by Asian flavours.

Darwin is the gateway to the Arnhem Land, Kakadu and Litchfield regions and is perfect to include at the beginning and end of your regional adventures. The Mindil Beach Casino Resort has a fantastic plunge pool overlooking the beachfront and is an incredible place to unwind after a multi-day adventure exploring Australia’s most remote regions.

  • Lounge by the plunge pool, and watch the sun set over the beachfront at Mindil Beach Casino Resort.
  • Learn about the Top End through an incredible multi-day journey through Kakadu, Litchfield and the Arnhem Land regions.
  • Enjoy a multi-leg helicopter journey over the Litchfield and Kakadu National parks, viewing this incredible land from both the land and sky.

Darwin receives two distinct seasons throughout the year, rather than the typical four found around the rest of the country. The Dry Season runs through May to October and is the perfect time to visit, with temperatures ranging between 21.6– 31.8°C (70.9 – 89.2°F).

The Wet Season is from November to April and is typically high in humidity and has monsoonal rains, with tropical cyclones possible during this period. The temperatures range from 24.7 – 32 °C (76.5 – 89.6°F).

What do our experts say about Darwin?

"I love Darwin and the welcoming, country-town atmosphere, rather than the busyness of a large capital city. It is a gateway to many incredible outback and cultural experiences, and we’re so lucky to have it."
