Darwin has a relaxed outdoor lifestyle and enjoys warm weather all year round. Perched on a peninsula with sea on three sides, Darwin is an excellent base to explore the natural attractions of World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park, Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks, the Tiwi Islands and Arnhemland.
You can visit the eclectic collection at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory; just 4 kms from the city centre this a great place to start your exploration of Darwin's heritage. The Art Gallery houses a comprehensive display of Indigenous art and artifacts that reveal much about the various Aboriginal groups from Darwin and its surrounds. Indigenous art is thriving in many communities throughout the Northern Territory's tropical outback. These include Maningrida, Oenpelli, Tiwi Islands and Yirrikala. While buying direct from these communities is a unique experience, you can also purchase indigenous art from the many art and craft outlets in and around Darwin.
