Darwin, Australia Cruises


Darwin, Australia overview

Levelled by a cyclone in 1974, Darwin has rebuilt itself from scratch. Wide tree-lined streets, well-designed public buildings, and acres of park land make this an ideal tropical capital. The attitude of the locals is casual and relaxed, and the young demographic keeps things moving. Darwin's location makes it the ideal jump-off point for sojourns into Australia's natural splendour.

We lost a day there in travel time on the boat due to issues with passenger illness. We just did the city walk around which was no big deal. They push you to buy bus tickets to get to the city center which takes about 10 minutes to drive but fail to tell you if you walk off the boat and go to the right, you can actually walk to the fun stuff in 5 minutes. I would not do a bus there unless your trying to get somewhere far away.
