Darwin, the capital of Australia’s Northern Territory (NT) is characterized by the harbor, the waterfront, and several green areas that make it an ideal vacation option. It is home to the massive Kakadu National Park, Darwin Convention Center, Museum and Art gallery of NT, and many other prime spots that narrate the history and culture of the Northern Territory. The greenery gives a nice sub-tropical feel and the area exudes laid-back beach vibes. You won’t be able to explore the entire town in a day and hence need a place to accommodate yourself in.
