Final point in the Northern Territory is Darwin. The Top End as the Aussies call it here and how they do advertise it. It’s actually the most northern city on the Australian continent.

Darwin is the capital of the Northern Territorry and it has “only” a poplulation of about 132’000. Around Darwin there is a lot to see and visit, from national parks and islands to the “Northen Territory Wildlife Parc” or museums and farms.
In Darwin itself there is a lot to do and see, starting with the Waterfront with many restaurants, shops, the Lagoon, Warf as well as the Mall or even the Central Business Destrict (CBD).
Darwin has with the Mindil Beach a great beach up to the east point. In the districts Northcliff, Parap or also in Palmerston there are markets or partly beautiful beaches. Everything in turn 😉 In Darwin the Waterfront is beautiful and varied with a great swimming lagoon (public and free) – around Darwin the beaches are unfortunately not suitable for bathing, either it has crocodiles or jellyfish. At the Waterfront is also the Conventioncenter as well as the museum of the “Royal Flying Doctor Services – R.F.D.S” and the “Stokes Hill Wharf” restaurant part.
At the R.F.D.S we were amazed, the aircraft fleet consists to a large extent (41 of 61 aircraft) of PC-12 and PC-24. So the Swiss Pilatus aircraft. These are very much appreciated and the PC-24 are increasingly ordered. (Aircraft bases of R.F.D.S.)
In the CBD there are many great restaurants, the mall, the parliament building as well as the “Croc Cove“. Everything is worth a visit and easy to experience, as Darwin is very small in itself for an Australian city.
