The low season (October to February) is the perfect time to visit Darwin with great accommodation and airfare deals on offer.  Popular serviced apartment property, Metro Advance Apartments & Hotel in the heart of Darwin city, is offering some great value Early Bird and Longer Stay deals with up to 15% off standard rates.

An exciting and unique part of the world, the Top End is rich in Indigenous culture and natural beauty. Explore the rich greenery of Litchfield National Park, see towering termite mounds, swim near cascading waterfalls and take a boat ride on the Adelaide River to spot huge crocodiles.  Cruise the Mary River Wetlands, home to the largest concentration of saltwater crocodiles in the world.  The Cage of Death is another unique experience in Crocosaurus Cove, the only opportunity in Australia to swim close to crocodiles.

The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory in Darwin is a great resource for local history, natural history, indigenous art and WW11 history. Travel through history at the Darwin Military Museum, where you will get an understanding of Darwin’s important role in World War II. Cruise around Darwin Harbour to see the local marine habitats, shipwrecks, mangroves and sites of cultural significance.  Sample a range of exotic cuisines, browse hundreds of stalls, and pick up beautiful handmade craft at the Mindil Beach Sunset Market.
