Days 1 - 6: Darwin
The capital of the Northern Territory, Darwin is the traditional home to the Larrakia people and the gateway to endless Aboriginal experiences and outback adventures. Gaze up at the city’s towering murals or climb down into Kakadu National Park’s vast canyons and discover a unique and authentic side to Australia.
- Connect with Aboriginal craft
Darwin has a thriving art scene that celebrates Aboriginal art in many ways. Visit the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory to enjoy paintings and sculptures from some of the Territory’s most inspiring artists.
- Forage for traditional bush ingredients
Kakadu plums, bush apples and water lilies are all native to the region and are a must-try on your visit. Duck out of the heat into a local cafe for some traditional Aussie refreshments including plum jam on damper bread or lemon myrtle tea.
- Drive back in time with a trip to Kakadu
Australia’s First Nations have deep connections with the land, you can experience some of it for yourself with a trip to Kakadu, where 20,000-year-old art paints the rock walls, waterfalls flow over red ochre cliffs and hidden plunge pools offer an oasis of unique flora and fauna.
