    This museum is really with visiting especially the Cyclone Tracey section. There was an interesting exhibit on songlines in the Gallery section. There is also an interesting section on boats including a pearling logger and boat used by Vietnamese boat people.
    The cafe is lovely for coffee or lunch.

    Lovely and peaceful to sit and gather your thoughts whilst the sun slowly disappears. A must to enjoy this view.

    Celebrated my birthday by doing the cage of death with William and Kate. I was disappointed that the cage was very scratched and my photos and the professional photos taken at the Cove were not very clear, I went at 3pm it was a nice sunny day, but they put me in the far end enclosure where the water looked grey and dull compared to the other enclosures that I'd seen and taken photos of other people from 12.30 to 2pm. The water was brght and clear and the people in the cage where clear unlike mine. I planned to buy the professional photo package but didn't buy any of them as I was disappointed. My sister and brother-in-law did the VIP tour and waited over 30 minutes before their guide arrived to do the tour, they asked 3 staff if they were in the right area, other visitors also complained about having to wait, not like they were short of staff. They had plenty there. The tour guide was informative.

    My family and I visited Berry Springs in the second week of May 2022. We were so looking forward to having a swim in the crystal waters after leaving Litchfield Park where Wangi Falls was closed due to potential crocodiles (entering the pools during the wet season. To our surprise, Berry Springs was also closed for the same reason so all we could do is look at it from afar. We heard on the media two days later that Berry Springs was reopened for swimming two days after we visited. Back timing for us as this was on high on our must visit list and to swim in the pristine waters. If we were able to swim there, no doubt we would have rated it 5 out of 5. Enjoy!

    It was worth calling into this information facility as the staff were extremely helpful. They went out of their way to check out booking dates for us and gave us sound advice.

    live music, croc skin accessories and I bought the most amazing croc belt at a competitive price to online product, blue cyprus oils and soaps ,tee shirts, hats . didgeridoo's, Slappers thongs. It was a great way to spend the afternoon, eating and shopping . Loved it but you can't please everyone.

    Wow - how lucky Darwinians are in having the Waterfront lagoon to enjoy for free. My family and I practically visited the waterfront area and lagoon everyday we were in Darwin (10 days). The lagoon contains sea water pumped into and out of the bay. It is safe to swim without the dangers of jelly fish and other marine animals as it is enclosed (man made). The lagoon is surrounded by apartments and eateries.
    Definitely a must visit when in Darwin.

    This is really worth visiting especially for WWII buffs. Good collection of all sorts of aircraft and a couple of interesting videos to watch. There is a little cafe and shop there.

    The waterfront is for everyone from a wave pool/lagoon to restaurants and pub. We sampled all of these and enjoyed them all. Very social scene.

    These are lovely gardens, with a variety of trails, including the Rainforest trail and the Africa- MadagascarGarden, with its variety of baobabs, including the Australian one.
    Eva’s cafe was a delightful spot with lovely food and exceptional, friendly service.

    A nice little zoo in Darwin, with a good range of animals including meerkats and lions, which was unexpected. Their animals seem very well looked after and the staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable. The short crocodile cruise in the man made pond was very well done and informative. A great alternative if you can't make it out of town for the other crocodile cruises. A good spot to stop for lunch as well.

    My family and I visited the Military Museum on our latest trip to Darwin in May. This was a second time for my wife and I and it is a must visit.

    The museum has two sections - Bombing of Darwin inside and war memorabilia outside. You can easily spend 2-3 hours there It is also very reasonably priced. Our two young adult daughters thought this was the highlight of our holiday.

    A large open space with walking trails and paths. This is a wonderful area to go for a stroll and just take in the atmosphere. Surround by water there was a nice breeze and just a fantastic spot to sit and do nothing
