Northern Territory Towns and Airports List

Book jet charters to Darwin and experience a trip of a lifetime flying over the beautiful mosaic of the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park and neighbouring Arnhem Land. The historic city in the far north peninsula of Australia is the gateway to the Australian Outback and is renowned for its indigenous culture and history, wildlife, national parks and rainforests.

Wildlife parks

While visiting the Northern Territory, don’t miss your chance to get up close and personal with the Territory’s diverse wildlife. Where else can you see crocodiles up close and personal (you know you want to!), see huge shoals of fish or visit wallabies, pelicans, goannas and other Australian wildlife and native birds in their natural habitat? Popular wildlife parks in Darwin include:

  • Aquascene
  • Crocodylus Park
  • Crocosaurus Cove
  • Darwin Wildlife Park
  • Darwin Crocodile Farm
  • The Territory Wildlife Park

Art galleries and museums

Take a step back in time and learn more about Darwin’s heritage, culture and indigenous origins. What better way to start when travelling by air charters to Darwin but to visit the Australian Aviation Heritage Centre? Other notable places to visit that pay homage to and celebrate Darwin’s rich and colourful history include:

  • Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory
  • The Maritime Museum
  • East Point Military Museum

Nature activities

Darwin’s tropical climate lends itself to a lot of open-air activities. You cannot visit Darwin without getting back to nature and/or embracing your inner adrenalin junkie. There are so many recreational activities and things to see and do in Darwin. Some of these include:

4 wheel driving

Step off your charter flight to Darwin and straight into a 4 wheel drive and explore Darwin like a native. Take the road less travelled and take a scenic trip through Darwin. You can drive your own car or take a chauffeured tour for an off-road adventure you will never forget. Popular driving tracks in Darwin include:

  • Exploring Darwin and neighbouring regions
  • Driving from Darwin to Litchfield National Park

Darwin City Sights

While Darwin admittedly is famous for its outdoor pursuits, the city has its own unique appeal. The major drawcards are the shopping haunts, dining alfresco by the harbour or within the heart of the city and checking out the live music scene. Popular leisure activities include:

  • Enjoying the live music scene and local talent on Mitchell Street and Smith Street in the city
  • Viewing a performance at the Darwin Theatre Company
