Reel thrills

The Deckchair Cinema, operated by the Darwin Film Society, is open every night from April to November. Watch the latest flicks with the sunset over the sea as backdrop, on a deckchair or straight-back seat. A vast range of foreign films is also screened, as are some classics. The licensed kiosk sells wine, beer, soft drinks, snacks and hot food. Bring a picnic, but you are not allowed to bring your own alcoholic drinks.

Market daze

Every Thursday and Sunday from the last Thursday in April until the last Sunday in October (5-10pm Thursdays; 4-9pm Sundays), Darwin residents and tourists head to the Mindil Markets on Mindil Beach. Often, there are tables, chairs, rugs and eskies in tow. The star of the show is food: think Thai, Indian, Sri Lankan, Chinese, Malaysian, Brazilian, Greek, Portuguese and more. Enjoy a massage, buy handmade jewelery, experience natural remedies, or just take in the market atmosphere.

Scale up

The world’s largest display of Australian reptiles and some of the largest saltwater crocodiles are at Crocosaurus Cove. The reptiles residing here are found primarily in the Top End of Australia. You can swim with the crocs (safely, in an enclosed area!), hold a baby croc, and see the turtle sanctuary and aquariums. Then head for the main attraction: enter the “Cage of Death”, Australia’s only crocodile “dive” with a 5m-long croc.

Up and away

The fastest, yet most relaxing and certainly the most dramatic way to experience the Kakadu National Park, Arnhem Land, Adelaide River and Mary River is by booking a scenic flight from Darwin. You’ll get a different perspective on the flora, lush wetlands and waterways surrounding Darwin. For more information, visit travelnt.com

On your Way

Why not take your time and travel along the scenic route? Drive from Darwin to Katherine, via Kakadu National Park along Nature’s Way. It’s a 550km journey, which you can do either as a one-way-and-stay or as a longer loop back to Darwin. We recommend you make the trip over a minimum seven-day timeframe, so you can take a dip in waterfalls and rock pools at Litchfield, canoe down the Katherine River and discover Aboriginal rock art at Kakadu.
