Darwin has evolved from its days as an incredibly laid back frontier town and while it still retains its relaxed charm, it has become a highly sophisticated city. Many visitors are surprised to find that it has accommodation, eateries, clubs, pubs, museums and other amenities that are at least equal to, and often better than, what you'll find in the southern cities.

For anglers, Darwin Harbour is known around Australia and the world as a world class fishing destination where barramundi, jewfish, giant trevally and other iconic Top End fish thrive.  A wide range of sporting activities for all ages is on offer and City of Darwin provides residents with diverse recreational services, facilities and activities.  Additionally, Council has a comprehensive Arts program and the Darwin Entertainment Centre attracts world class performers to suit everyone’s cultural taste.
