Darwin is a city in the Northern Territory of Australia. With a high degree of diverse cultures, it is considered as the most cosmopolitan city in the country. It also happens to be the most tropical city of Australia.
For travelers who are not accustomed to tropical climates, Darwin can be a shock to the body. As a tropical city, high humidity is to be expected, along with high temperatures. The good news is that it has a lot of tropical foliage. Kakadu National Park, Australia’s largest is about an hour and a half away from the Darwin CBD. A short drive away from the city is the Charles Darwin National Park.
As with most of the country’s big cities, Darwin is on the water with plenty of beaches within minutes of driving. However, these are not the quintessential Aussie swimming waters. These beaches are popular for the local folk, but if you are new to the area, you should take some precautions. Box jellyfish and crocodiles are common in the area. Strictly speaking, there is no summer season, there is what the locals call the dry season months from May to August. During these months, the beaches are safe from jellyfish. For the rest of the wildlife, the rangers and traps protect the beaches from crocodiles.
The city is diverse and teeming with life, and it will take some time to get from one location to another. The best way to get around the city and its environs is to hire a chauffeur driven car. These vehicles are driven by experienced drivers who understand the passengers need. It you are visiting the city for a business meeting, it would be prudent to have a trained professional at the wheel.
