Charles Darwin National Park
Directions - Located 10 minutes east of Darwin by car, take Tiger Brennan Drive until you reach the signs for the park. Turn right at the traffic lights onto the access road and follow this all the way to the end to reach the car park for the walk.
The Hike - It's rare to have a national park so close to the centre of a capital city but Darwin has Charles Darwin National Park right on its doorstep. As I'm always looking out for walks to do in any place I visit so I did a quick Google of the park to see if there were any marked trails to enjoy. I found the official park brochure and it looked like there was something there although the birds eye view map was a bit sketchy on trail lengths and directions. With only a short drive out there I decided it was worth checking out and joining me again was Caris, her mum and her mum's partner.
