  • After World War II and Hurricane Tracy is this group of houses and one of the last remaining buildings of the old, atmospheric region. The cottages tell a part of the history; the very amiable voluntarily (st) ers tell more about. Apart from the old house visit outside and inside, you can also enjoy tea with scones. The atmosphere is aussie-quiet. This simple attraction is very worthwhile to visit i.c.m. waterfront or Mindil Beach.

Where to stay in Darwin

A small but distinctly cosmopolitan city, Darwin offers a surprisingly diverse range of lodgings, with most hotels located in or near the central business district. Despite this, finding a comfortable room during the peak May-to-September season can be extremely difficult, especially if you don't book ahead of your visit. If planning months in advance isn't an option, consider staying at a backpacker hostel or guesthouse outside the city center. Many of these smaller establishments offer access to free Wi-Fi and outdoor swimming pools.
