Darwin lies along the northwest coast of the Northern Territory. the city is isolated by the spacious Australian desert. A significant event in the history of Darwin was in 1974 when Cyclone Tracy swept across the coast and destroyed more than half of the buildings, killing around 70 people. Today Darwin is the capital and biggest city of the Northern Territory. It offers many sights from its colonial past and perfect dining and shopping opportunities.
Cyclone-proofing doesn't make for beautiful architecture, but today Darwin is an attractive blend of reconstructions and the few surviving colonial buildings. Interesting sites are the museum Fannie Bay Gaol, Old Admiralty House, Victoria Hotel, Chinese Temple, the Civic Centre with "Tree of Knowledge" banyan tree and Government House (1883). The Northern Territory Museum of Arts and Sciences, located on the shores of Fannie Bay, is a contemporary installation with good exhibitions of Aboriginal art, Asian and Pacific exhibits.The Botanical Gardens display the great variety of tropical flora. The city is closely identified with, and serves as gateway to Kakadu National Park which lies around 125 miles (200 km) to the east. To the south lies Litchfield National Park, Edith Falls and Katherine Gorge.
Highlights: Kakadu Park, Katherine Gorge, Litchfield National Park, Crocodiles
