Overview Of The Port Of Darwin

About Darwin
Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory in Australia.

The 105 acre Darwin Botanical Gardens is just over a mile away from the town centre.

The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory is 20 minutes by bus to Conacher Road and a further 5 minute walk.

The modern Parliament House, at the corner of Bennett and Mitchell streets, overlooks the 1883 built Government House and the harbour.

The WWII Oil Storage Tunnels on Kitchener Drive, near the port, were constructed during World War II to protect the fuel supplies from Japanese air raids.

Bicentennial Park, paralleling the Esplanade and the cliffs overlooking the water, features many war memorials.

Art galleries in the city include the Raintree Aborginal Fine Arts Gallery and the Aboriginal Fine Arts Gallery.

Cullen Bay Marina, a short taxi ride from the city centre, has a seafront and boardwalk, packed with restaurants and cafes. Harbour cruises and fishing trips leave from here.

Litchfield National Park is located 75 miles south of Darwin and is noted for waterfalls cascading into plunge pools. There are numerous marked walking trails for short and long hikes.

Darwin's main shopping area is along Smith Street, popular purchases are aboriginal art and crafts, cultured pearls, opals and diamonds.

There are lots of dining options in Darwin from "Taste of the Territory" (crocodile, kangaroo and barramundi), fresh fish and seafood and international choices such as Thai, Tandoori and Chinese.
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships dock close to the main town centre at Fort Hill Wharf. The walk to town takes around 15 minutes.

Taxis are available at the pier.

Cruise lines may run a shuttle bus for the short journey into town.

The bus terminal for the local Darwin bus is located along Harry Chan Place, off Smith Street, at the end of the main shopping street, near the port.
