Come and discover this unique destination with cheap all inclusive Darwin holidays from Ireland.
Sitting in an area known as the Top End, holidays in Darwin are about soaking up the sun and the Australian lifestyle without the hustle and bustle of big cities such as Melbourne and Sydney. The attitude and lifestyle in Darwin is laidback - something you often find in small cities that lounge under blue skies and bright sunshine. Perched on a peninsula with sea on three sides, Darwin is an excellent base to explore the natural attractions of World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park, Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks, the Tiwi Islands and Arnhem Land. Experience the Adelaide River's famous jumping crocodiles, Fogg Dam, the Wildlife Park, Wetlands Visitor Centre and the world famous Ghan railway. A spectacular train journey through the outback, The Ghan takes visitors from the impressive MacDonnell Ranges through Darwin and the lush Top End before continuing through Alice Springs and The Red Centre past Ayers Rock, The Olgas and Kings Canyon all the way across the country to finish up in Adelaide. An extremely popular addition to any Northern Territory itinerary and always a favourite!
Much of Darwin's action happens along its revitalised waterfront, which is lined with restaurants, shops, sandy lagoons and parklands. Swim in the lagoon, fish from the wharf, dine alfresco on just-caught seafood and wander past the waterfront mansions. Visit the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets and browse the art and craft stalls or sample an eclectic mix of international dishes. You can also trace the area's rich history in walking trails and public artworks. Today families, business people and tourists mingle along the waterfront, where the Larrakia Aboriginal people, Indonesian traders and European settlers have all left their mark.
