Full description
Join a city sights tour for the perfect introduction to Darwin, with expert commentary by a local guide. Your Driver Guide will point out significant landmarks and will speak about Darwin’s rich history and culture throughout.

Darwin Aviation Museum: This is one of the major aviation museums in Australia. The main display is a B-52 Bomber, on permanent loan from the United States Air Force. You can view some rare amateur footage of the first air-raid in Darwin, and original footage from Japanese archives. There are 19 aircraft on display, from Mirage and Sabre jet fighters to a Royal Australian Wessex helicopter.

Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory: home to internationally renowned artistic, cultural and scientific collections and research programs. You’ll get to see the largest permanent display of Aboriginal artwork in Australia as well as an eclectic range of visiting exhibitions.

Darwin Botanic Gardens: find out how these gardens have survived numerous cyclones and the direct effects of World War II. Because the site extends inland from the sea to a plateau, it provides a range of planting environments and is one of a few botanic gardens in the world which has marine and estuarine plants naturally in its grounds. Not only will you have the chance to see some unique and exotic plants but even some local wildlife!

Learnt a lot about the Darwin area.

We travelled all around the Darwin city area. Saw lots of iconic sights and travelled to areas we probably wouldn't have managed to get to otherwise. Received a lot of background information from the knowledgeable driver/guide. Would definitely recommend.
