Things to see and do with a rental car from Darwin Airport
As the capital city of the Northern Territory, Darwin is a rich and vibrant location brimming with all sorts of things to see and do. With a strong indigenous heritage, beautiful beaches and buzzing nightlife, it has something for everyone to enjoy and is a great retreat for families, couples and more mature travelers. You can get up close and personal with a croc at Crocodylus Park, visit the Darwin Aviation Heritage Centre, or take a cultural tour to learn more about the region’s Indigenous history.
If you love the great outdoors, you’ll be delighted by the variety of parks you can explore – not to mention the gorgeous botanic gardens. Meanwhile bargain-hunters will enjoy wandering through the local markets, which offer up an impressive variety of local arts and crafts. And there’s plenty for foodies to get stuck into as well, with a wide selection of quality restaurants and eateries just waiting to tempt your taste buds.
Of course, if you fancy heading out of Darwin, then your SIXT hire car will easily take you to Litchfield National Park, which is just a short hour-and-a-half drive away. Other iconic natural sites include the Kakadu National Park – which is about a three-hour drive – where you’ll find ancient Aboriginal rock art, lush wetlands and a third of Australia's bird species. The outback landscape is one of a kind, and something you have to see to believe.
