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.

  • If it was only to be found here I would rate this higher, but it's found all over the park and even saw two other large fields like this but you have to keep your eyes out.. It exactly like pictures. Even nice info boards.
  • The whole park is awesome! I do not think you need to pay for a guided tour as they anyway drives you around and you do hop in/ hop off around the park's hot spots.. Just get a rental car a drive around by yourself. And stop in highlighted areas as the termits (they actually lives inside and what you could see is not the termits but the ants who may be part of the ecosystem..)
  • Unbelievable ! the work that went into building these mounds,worth a look Aye!
  • Termite Mounds are massive, quite a few big ones, gives you a run down on how they are made etc. Interesting info. Wander around yourself
  • Cool interesting to learn about how termites regulate temperature underground
