Experience Boat Tours in Darwin & Kakadu National Park

Best things to do: Your boat cruise into the wetlands and around the harbour are only the beginning of your Darwin adventures. There’s the beauty of Kakadu National Park to explore, and you can hop on the bus for a trip around town. There’s the botanical garden to explore, the military museum, the waterfront precinct and Crocosaurus cove among the highlights.

Best time to go: For a comfortable experience, you’re best to visit the region between May and October. It’s the dry season and as a bonus, you have famous events such as Mindil Beach Sunset Markets and the Darwin Festival.

Make it your base: As you’re visiting the region, and Darwin is on the doorstep of the outback, it’s a good idea to have the city as your base. Explore the beauty of the national parks and return at night to relax and enjoy a beer! Darwin has a laid-back, friendly vibe.

• The Sunset Markets at Mindil beach are more than just markets. These are events! You can watch performers, buy souvenirs and taste food, all while the sun sets in the distance. Perfect!

• It’s estimated that there are around 200,000, ‘salties’ – that’s saltwater crocodiles in the Top End. Don't worry, wardens are on hand to keep them away.

• Strange that for a city named after Charles Darwin, he never actually set foot in the city! It was christened in his honour. It was his former shipmate Lieutenant John Stokes; who bestowed this honour when he was the first European to set sight on Port Darwin.
