This article provides the best places to go in a day to truly experience what Darwin is all about.
Breakfast And A Dip At The Darwin Waterfront
Start the day with some delicious hearty breakfast at the Darwin Waterfront, and afterwards, a nice cool dip in the pool will top it off nicely.
Apart from the terrific food available here, you also get to enjoy the rich tropical scenery Darwin has to offer.
Then there's the wave lagoon which is Darwin's most popular attraction. It's no surprise thousands of tourists come here every year! This man-made attraction has waves that go as high as 1.2 meters which is safe for swimming. But just in case, there are lifeguards constantly patrolling the area so it is perfect for the whole family.
Enjoy Darwin’s Street Art and Museums
Darwin boasts magnificent street art to immerse yourself in on your post breakfast walk. It's even more impressive during the Darwin Street Art Festival with2D and 3D works adorning the city.
You'll experience different cultures and certainly learn things you didn't know before! If Museums are right up your alley, then we also recommend The Darwin Military Museum.
Get a real close up on what happened during World War II and Australia's involvement in it. There's a special focus on Japan's attack of Australia, which is the first and largest foreign attack on Australia.
It's almost impossible not to get emotional in this place, seeing all that has been, and learning all this will give you insight into Darwin's history and how it is what it is today.
