City Guide to Darwin

Why Darwin?

DarwinFrom being the home of an annual beer can boat race to being the gateway to some of Oz's most famous sights, Darwin has always been a pretty mixed up place. It's a fantastically ethnically diverse city, and this is reflected in the huge number of different foods you can eat and in the variety of music you can enjoy. But it is also a great base if you want to head out and see sights like Uluru (or Ayer's Rock), or the fabulous Kakadu National Park.
