Darwin — 1 night

The smallest of Australia’s state capitals, Darwin has nevertheless become an attractive and important urban center, being simultaneously one of the country’s most modernized cities and a gateway to both the Top End region and South East Asia.
Plan my day in Darwin using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
