There is More to Australia than Sydney

sunset on a Darwin beachDarwin’s strategic position and its strong infrastructure led to the city becoming the Allied forces’ frontline in the Pacific during World War II. It was nearly decimated in attacks by Japanese forces and, in fact, is the only Australian city to have ever been bombed during an enemy action. A few decades later, in 1974, Cyclone Tracy swept through Darwin and left just 400 houses standing in the city. Darwin is nothing if not resilient, though, and the city comes back stronger than ever each time it is dealt what might be a death blow to other cities. Darwin offers its visitors an incredible opportunity to study history, to explore the beauty of nature and to enjoy the vibrancy of the city itself.

Darwin accommodation is available to meet every budget and personal preference. The city features four- and five-star hotels with incredible ocean views starting at $290 a night, resorts starting at just $210 a night and budget hotels starting at just $81 a night. Furnished apartments can be ideal for long-term stays and tend to include fully equipped kitchens and laundry facilities, one to three bedrooms, WiFi, TVs, entertainment systems and access to parking, gyms and pools.

Kakadu, the Tiwis, Litchfield and more are all in Darwin’s backyard, making the opportunities for adventure and sightseeing virtually endless. Its warm, tropical environment makes the city a delight to visit, and it has even been named as Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2012. From bushwalking to relaxing on the beach and from sampling exotic flavours to shopping vibrant street markets, Darwin has it all.

The best time to visit Darwin is during the dry season, which runs from May until October. Days are warm and dry, and nights are cool. Temperatures during June and July average 32°C. The wet season, which is also known as the tropical summer, runs from November until April. Although it is called the wet season, it is not necessarily rainy. Accommodations and travel expenses may be reduced during this off-peak season, but the weather can be unreliable. November and December, in particular, can bring tumultuous weather with frequent storms and considerable lightning.
