The Northern Territory’s tropical capital city of Darwin is a mecca for outdoor adventure, sumptuous flavours and cultural experiences. The waterfront city is a delightful hub for exploring the rugged wilderness of the Kimberley, one of Australia’s most unique natural treasures.
The picturesque Darwin Harbour provides sublime cruising grounds to enjoy the luxury of a superyacht charter. With refreshing ocean breezes and breath-taking landscapes to gaze upon, this is a truly unique setting for superyacht charters, where you can indulge in luxury amenities, lounge on the sun deck and take to the water on toys and tenders.
For more superyacht adventure in the region, the Tiwi Islands offer a great opportunity to take your private yacht to a different setting, where you can enjoy the tropics of the Arafura Sea and incorporate activities such as fishing into a charter itinerary.
The Northern Territory has more crocodiles than anywhere else in the world, and naturally there plenty of opportunities to meet these incredible creatures around Darwin.
There are two types of crocodiles that reside in the area, the freshwater crocodile and the fiercer saltwater crocodile. Measuring at an average of 5 metres in length and weighing up to 500 kilograms, the saltwater crocodiles are the largest and most aggressive of the species.
Crocodiles have called this area of the world their home for over 200 million years, and you can spot them in the wild as you cruise the mangrove-lined banks, rivers and wetlands. In the heart of the city, you can visit Crocosaurus Cove to see the world’s largest display of Australian reptiles, where the Cage of Death gives brave souls the chance to swim with saltwater crocodiles up close.
Much of Darwin’s natural splendour is concentrated on land, with 24 national parks and 73 nature reserves and conservation areas to explore. The parks will reward you with spectacular scenery which can be discovered on guided bushwalks, leading to majestic waterfalls for a refreshing dip. This is a unique opportunity to learn about native plants, birds and animals as well as the Aboriginal culture of the Northern Territory. Kakadu, Uluru and Nitmiluk are among the unmissable national parks where you will immerse yourself in remote wilderness.
Darwin’s culinary scene has influences from over 50 nationalities, which ensure you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to dinner time. Savour the exquisite tastes of fresh regional produce and specialities such as barramundi and mud crab, or sample South East Asian cuisine and even flavours of Greece in the many celebrated restaurants. Dining in Darwin is very much an experience in and of itself.
