Darwin — 4 nights

The smallest of Australia’s state capitals, Darwin has nevertheless become an attractive and important urban center, being simultaneously one of the country’s most modernized cities and a gateway to both the Top End region and South East Asia.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Barramundi Adventures Darwin, Darwin Waterfront, Crocosaurus Cove, and other attractions you added. Bring the kids along to St Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Cathedral and Marlow Lagoon Recreation Area. Change things up with a short trip to Territory Wildlife Park in Berry Springs (about 42 minutes away). The adventure continues: tour in harmony with nature at Aquascene Fish Feeding and play a few rounds at Palmerston Golf & Country Club.

And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Kata Tjuta / Mount Olga, take in the dramatic natural features at Walpa Gorge, go for a walk through Mala Walk, and take an in-depth tour of Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre.
