Welcome to Darwin

Darwin is a vibrant tropical city surrounded by the sea, world heritage national parks and the outback. 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. A diverse cultural background provides some of the best and most varied food experiences in Australia. Many new comers are surprised to find that it has eateries, clubs, pubs, museums and other amenities comparable to what you’d find in the southern cities.

Suburbs of Darwin

All Darwin and Palmerston suburbs are located within 30 kilometres of the Defence bases and are therefore convenient locations for housing. Palmerston is just a 15 minute drive south-east of Darwin, and is one of Australia’s fastest growing areas.
