Darwin is the thriving capital of Australia’s Northern Territory (note – the Kimberley is in Western Australia, not in the N.T). It’s a multicultural town with many different opportunities for dining and also with access to national parks such as Litchfield (can do day trip) and Kakadu (overnight is needed). The waterfront area has a lagoon, a wave pool and many restaurants looking out onto the grassy lagoon area. Walking from the waterfront up the hill, you’ll get to the esplanade area which has green parklands, views out to the sea, many hotels and the CBD area close-by. 20 minutes from the CBD is Darwin’s international airport.
