#18 of 138 in Things to do in Darwin
Just north of the city, East Point Reserve is noted for its many walking trails, cycling paths, and lush surroundings teeming with native wildlife. This area is also home to the city’s East Point Military Museum, introducing tourists to the region’s rich military history. The reserve is particularly attractive at dusk, when you can watch a large mob of wallabies emerge to feed as the sun sets over the bay. A small saltwater lake is also located inside the reserve, created specifically to allow visitors year-round swimming and fishing opportunities in safe waters. You can also explore the offshore coral reef, a rich underwater world of protected marine wildlife. A large children's playground and barbecue facilities are provided for visitors planning family picnics in this spot.

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.
