Darwin is a beautiful tropical city situated on the edge of Darwin Harbour and bordering a number of national parks and reserves, creating a fascinating, diverse mix of culture, people and nature. It is the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Kakadu National Park and Litchfield National Park, and the isolated Tiwi Islands. The city is also steeped in history with indigenous culture in the region dating back tens of thousands of years. Darwin also felt the full force of World War 2 when it was destroyed in a bombing attack in 1942, and so the city's wartime heritage is remembered at numerous sites across the region. Experience the history on a wartime experience guided tour, explore WWII sites by adventuring on off-road vehicles through a nearby national park, or immerse yourself in the Dreamtime stories and traditions through a number of indigenous cultural experiences on offer.
