Itinerary


Accommodation:


The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Esplanade Darwin is located next to the Darwin Entertainment Centre and overlooks the palm-lined esplanade, with stunning ocean views also available from select rooms. All rooms have been newly refurbished, and the hotel also boasts the largest outdoor swimming pool in Darwin, as well as free WiFi, a fitness room and beauty salon. While being located on the esplanade, the DoubleTree is also within walking distance of many Darwin hotspots, eateries and shopping areas. A later check out time of 1pm will also mean a relaxing end to your stay in Darwin.


Where to eat:


While staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Esplanade, you’ll receive 15% off food and beverages at the DoubleTree restaurant and pool bar, Aqua. The menu provides mouth-watering dishes that all boast delicious Mediterranean influences as well as hints of the Territory – a truly innovative marriage of flavours. You can also choose to soak up the sun by the pool while you sip a glass of fine wine on the outdoor terrace.


You’ll find yourself dining at the iconic Hotel Darwin which dates back to 1940 and has been a long-running watering-hole for the city’s locals. This is the place to try a variety of local produce including fresh barramundi, thick rump steak, mouth-watering pizzas and even kangaroo pie.


What to do:


Sightseeing in the NT’s capital city is easy with the Hop on Hop off Bus which will allow you to customise your Darwin experience while also learning interesting facts via the entertaining audio commentary provided on the bus. The popular drop-off spots include the beautiful George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens, Crocosaurus Cove, Stokes Hill Wharf and the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.


The Royal Flying Doctor Service Darwin Tourist Facility details two key elements within the Northern Territory’s extensive history. Founded in 1939 by Reverend John Flynn, the RFDS has a rich history of heroic tales from the pilots, doctors, nurses and patients that can experienced through life-size holograms, interactive storytelling, touch screen portals and even a decommissioned RFDS Pilatus PC 12 aircraft that you can venture into. Relive the iconic wartime experience through the immersive Virtual Reality of the Bombing of Darwin Harbour 1942 – a movie production whose magnitude has never been seen before in VR.


Location & how to get there


Darwin International Airport (darwinairport.com.au) is serviced by many Domestic and Regional airline carriers including Qantas, Virgin Australia, Jetstar and Air North. Flights mainly operate out of Australia’s capital cities and generally take between 3 – 4 hours.


The airport is about a 15-minute drive from the centre of town. The Darwin Airport Shuttle meets all domestic and international flights and departs from the front of the terminal. Car hire is available from the counters close to the baggage carousels. There are also plenty of taxis available at the airport cab rank and private transfers can be pre-booked.


Darwin can also be reached by The Ghan, from Adelaide or Alice Springs, with trains arriving weekly on Tuesdays. While the rail station is situated a short drive from the city centre, free transfers are offered to all passengers.


For those driving there are a number of entryways to access Darwin. Most roads are sealed however some are for the more adventurous 4 wheel drivers. If you are coming from Queensland the best route to take is the Overlander’s Way / Barkly Highway from Mt Isa. If you are leaving from Cairns you can take the Savannah Way which is a rugged, unsealed road which crosses the top of Australia from Cairns to Broome. You can also use the Savannah Way as an access from Western Australia. Other roads leading from WA to Darwin include the Tanami Road that runs across the Tanami Desert and to the north the Butine Highway. The drive from South Australia is especially scenic as you follow the Explorer’s Way through Coober Pedy and past the major centres of Alice Springs, Tennant Creek and Katherine before arriving in Darwin.
