While Darwin is a popular base for tourists wanting to explore the Northern Territory wilderness there are still things to do within the city. There are plenty of markets and festivals throughout the year and an amazing cultural diversity to be experienced.
Darwin is infamous for its crocs. Whether it’s sightings of giant crocs or reports of attacks, you can’t deny that crocodiles and the Northern Territory go hand in hand. You don’t have to be at risk of mauling to get up close and personal with these prehistoric creatures, just head down to one of the many crocodile shows hosted in Darwin for a show on how these reptiles hunt and live.
The main exhibit at the Aviation Heritage Centre is a massive B-52 bomber (one of only three on display outside the U.S.) along with other military aircraft, engines and the wreckage of a Japanese Zero fighter shot down in the 1942 air raids on Darwin. This is a unique opportunity to imagine and experience history first hand.
Plunge into the ‘Cage of Death’ and swim with some of Australia’s largest saltwater crocodiles at Darwin’s Crocosaurus Cove. This latest attraction is perfect for adrenalin junkies who dare to get up close and personal with these amazing prehistoric creatures. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind experience!
