Explore the city with a local on this 2-hour walk and enjoy a local’s perspective whilst getting a sense of how the city of Darwin has developed to blend the past with today’s modern multicultural vibe. Our guides cheerfully share their passion for the town they call home and will tell of the history of the World War II bombings and Cyclone Tracy. Discover many of the remaining buildings such as the old Court House and Police Station, Browns Mart and the Old Palmerston Town Hall ruins, all of which have been painstakingly reconstructed.View Government House, Parliament House and the Northern Territory Supreme Court on our journey through the streets of this modern tropical city.
There’s many hidden treasures to see on foot, like the Beagle Bells and plenty of opportunities to capture photographs of the indigenous sculptures, architecture, historic buildings, wildflowers and wildlife.
With practical city design, Darwin is one of the best cities in Australia to explore by foot. We walk all year round in our vibrant city, through all seasons, adapting to the needs of our guests during the Tropical Summer when the pace of life slows.
November to April, it does rain, so bring an umbrella. We will still walk unless we consider conditions are too dangerous.
