Darwin City Walks

The capital city of the Northern Territory and the gateway to Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks, Darwin is a tropical paradise full of history, culture, attractions and makes for a great winter escape.

Exploring this multicultural city is best done on foot so along with these walks listed below I'll be adding some from my visit to Litchfield National Park


To avoid the excessive heat it is best to visit during the Dry Season (May to October) and aim to start/finish your walks in the morning or afternoon (plus the lighting is much better).

Click on each page for more information including a zoomable map, plenty of photos and a description of what to expect.
