There is one absolute must do when visiting Darwin, or any part of the West coast of Australia. You must watch the sun set over the Timor Sea.
Unless you live on the East coast of Australia, the novelty of this would be probably a little lost on you. There’s just something magical about watching the sun sink beneath the water, or at least appear to do so.
One of my favourite discoveries from my trip to the Northern Territory is the Ski Club in Darwin. So laid back and welcoming. They are more than happy to have non members from out of town pay them a visit, just be sure to sign in at the bar.
