Things to See & Do

Watch!

Watch Discovery Parks - Darwin on Whats Up Downunder to help plan your top end adventure.

 

Ride the Tour tub

Explore Darwin and its historic sites on Australia's only unique open air bus – just hop on and off at any stop. Friendly guides provide live, informative commentary. Sit back and discover our exciting and beautiful tropical city, including World War II history and Darwin before and after Cyclone Tracy.

Australian Aviation Heritage Centre

From the WWII Spitfire to a gigantic B52, this centre boasts an impressive presentation of aircraft and displays depicting the NT’s longstanding involvement in aviation. One of the major aviation museums in Australia and one of Darwin’s must-see attractions. The massive B-52 bomber is on permanent loan from the United States Air Force, one of only two on public display outside the USA.

Crocosaurus Cove

This $32 million, three story venture in the heart of Darwin occupies almost an entire city block. See iconic Top End Saltwater Crocodiles from three months to 80 years old in eight purpose-built displays viewable from all three levels. Bring your bathers and “swim with the crocs”, smile for the camera while holding a baby Saltwater Crocodile and check out Barramundi, Sawfish and Whip rays in our 200,000 litre fresh water aquarium.

Darwin Military Museum

The Darwin Military Museum (DMM) was founded in the mid 1960s by Lieutenant Colonel Jack Haydon and members of the Northern Territory branch of the Royal Australian Artillery Association. The Association, throughout it's numerous contacts, soon started accumulating war memorabilia from all over the Territory, other parts of Australia and internationally. Since then, several notable local collectors have also contributed greatly to the museum’s exhibits including the newest The Defence of Darwin Experience (DDE).

Iconic Mindil Beach Markets

As the sun dips into the Arafura Sea every Thursday and Sunday evening, most of Darwin descends on Mindil Beach; tables, chairs, rugs and eskies in tow.

Food is the main attraction − Thai, Sri Lankan, Indian, Chinese and Malaysian to Brazilian, Greek, Portuguese and more. Colourful arts and crafts vendors peddle their wares - handmade jewellery, natural remedies, artistic creations and unique fashion statements. Shop till you drop, catch a fire show, stop for a massage or be entertained by buskers, bands and talented performers as you wind your way through the palm lined boulevards of Mindil Beach Sunset Markets.
