What to Do in Darwin Besides Croc Hunt


What to Do in Darwin is part of the TPOL Down Under Trip Report.

What’s there to do in Darwin? I’m not to sure because I spent most of my time going into the outback (see The Road to Kakadu: Walking in Dundee’s Footsteps.) However, while I was there, I did manage walk around the city for some food and drink. It reminded me a lot of Chiang Rai, Thailand because there were plenty of backpackers.  It also reminded me of Missoula, Montana because of the hippie feel.

Don’t Miss 
Crocosaurus Cove: THE CAGE OF DEATH!: Obviously, this is the best thing to do in Darwin.

An artist painted this picture. Apparently, it’s a super model but I’m convinced it’s Ms. TPOL.

TPOL is lucky

Istanbul Kebab: Get the lamb. 

Breakfast: Both Coffee Club and The Tap have good breakfast.

Try 12 beers at Six Tanks for 40AUD. Some were winners, some were losers, the worst being the Italian.

Pho. It’s terrible (see Pho Darwin: Worst in the World). No need to post pictures.

Unlike Chiang Rai, I recommend a hostel over a brand name. The DoubleTree was not worth the cash. I could’ve stayed at a hostel in a better location at half the price compared to the the Frontier Hotel (see Stay Local: Nak Nakara Chiang Rai vs. Stay Comfortable: Le Meridien Chiang Rai).

Or Frontier: Save your cash and stay at a hostel.
