The renovated Darwin Wharf Precinct now includes a large convention and exhibition center, retail and entertainment outlets, a large wave pool, and a protected lagoon, which extends into the harbor and provides several spots for safe swimming and relaxing in the sun.

The neighborhood is known for its many restaurants with outdoor seating and numerous kiosks selling cold beer. The harbor stays busy with passing ships and visitors from around the world.

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.
