Dar­win of­fers a huge range of ac­tiv­i­ties for vis­i­tors keen to ex­pe­ri­ence the cap­i­tal of the North­ern Ter­ri­tory. On the har­bour, the Dar­win Water­front Precinct is all things to all peo­ple but the best thing about it is the huge Recre­ation La­goon which has a per­fect sandy beach and Wave La­goon for those want­ing to have a body­surf in croc-free waters. Mindil Beach Sun­set Mar­kets is still as pop­u­lar as ever – in­ter­rupt your shop­ping to take in the sun­set over the Ara­fura Sea – it will leave you speech­less. An­other great place to see the sun­set is on a sun­set har­bour cruise where you can take in the sights with a wine in hand. Fly over the har­bour on the brand new Pas­pa­ley Fly­ing Boat Tours, which op­er­ate on lux­ury Grum­man Mal­lard air­craft. Learn about Dar­win’s his­tory on a Her­itage Walk, and pick up the heart rate at Cro­cosaurus Cove in the city cen­tre. Bet­ter still, head out to Cor­ro­boree Bil­l­abong on a wet­land sa­fari cruise and see crocs in their world. A lit­tle fur­ther afield – 90 min­utes from Dar­win – is stun­ning Litch­field Park with its spec­tac­u­lar wa­ter­falls in­clud­ing Florence, Tolmer and Wangi, where you can swim in pris­tine nat­u­ral plunge pools.
