    The displays well presented and informative.
    Very clean, easy to move through to each area. Information was very interesting and not too long. The area about cyclone Tracy bought back memories of watching this as a family in NSW just wishing we could help.
    The gift shop was lovely with a mix of different cultures.
    Our group of 8 absolutely loved it and we are a very diverse group and found something that intrigued each of us

    Great croc park in the middle of town. We did the "cage of death" experience. Was expensive, and I was a bit dubious, but WOW! What an experience. You will never get this close to a large saltwater croc. We met Leo, a 5 metre monster, and he put on quite a show! Would recommend as a once in a lifetime experience.

    Amazing. Loved the immersive experience of the bombing, the hologram films on both RFDS & Bombing of Darwin WW11, also 3D presentations.
    Spent 2 hours but could have spent longer.
    Suitable for all ages
    Highly recommend

    Fantastic spot with lots of green grassed picnic areas and beautiful swimming spot with different sections nestled in a rain forest setting.

    Absolutely stunning sunset, must visit here when in Darwin, make sure it's a market night too, or come any night, the sunsets are epic.

    The Darwin Aviation Museum is adjacent to Darwin Airport, but on the other side. A local bus stops in front of the museum. Its prize exhibit is the only Boeing B-52 Stratofortress on display in the Southern Hemisphere. It was built in 1959 and gifted by the U.S. government to the people of Darwin in 1990. They had to build a special hangar to accommodate this huge aircraft. I spent two hours at this museum enjoying their many exhibits.

    A beautiful comprehensive area with a wave pool, a beach area and an adventurous playground. The whole area is surrounded by a beautiful park and many cafes and bars.

    Spent a few hours here on our travels.
    Kids had an absolute ball.
    Has plenty of shade and trees around to sit under.
    No toilets within the wave pool area.
    Closest ones were near the kiosk or in the park.
    Didn’t take away from the fun had.

    Great place to visit with lots of war memorabilia. Outside is a variety of tanks, guns, bunkers and various displays, and inside is a collection of uniforms, medals, informative video and information. Small cafe that’s very well priced for drinks and snacks.

    Fun markets to stroll around and experience all that Darwin has to offer in the way of food and products. The epic sunset on the beach during the markets helped too. These are a must visit when in Darwin. Would love to return some day.

    This was built in 1994 and is the largest crocodile and wildlife attraction in the Northern Territory. It has hundreds of crocodiles, a museum and a jumping croc cruise. It costs $44 for an adult and cheaper for concessions.

    Amazing museum. Brilliant inside interactive exhibitions plus so many other things outside.
    Need at least two hours. We ran out of time on our tour but I would love to return.
    Highly recommend.

    These markets were great - a much better proportion of food stalls to product stalls. Still a bit crowded but more manageable ( eg queues not as bad). Nice Vietnamese iced coffee, good food options. Would def go again. Mindil - I won’t.

    These gardens are quite spectacular, we didn't walk the whole gardens this time but we have visited here previously. The gardens are looking at their best at the moment with all the rain they have had up north.
