About Darwin

Darwin is the capital of Australia's Northern Territory. Located on the Timor Sea, Darwin has more than 135,000 residents and is the biggest population centre in the the sparsely populated Northern Territory. Established as a small port, it is now one of the country's most significant cities. Easy access to South East Asia makes Darwin a significant gateway to such countries as Indonesia and East Timor.

Renting a car in Darwin puts you at the very start of the Stuart Highway, which leads all the way to Port Augusta in South Australia. Darwin lies on a low-lying bluff facing the harbour, with suburbs extending out from Lee Point in the north to Berrimah in the east. With its tropical climate, Darwin is susceptible to heavy monsoons and spectacular lightning in rainy season, whereas blue skies and light sea breezes are the norm during the dry season.

The city was named in honour of the famous English naturalist, a former shipmate of the HMS Beagle, which sailed into Darwin harbour on 9 September 1839. It became the town of Palmerston in 1869 and was renamed Darwin in 1911. Darwin has had to be rebuilt twice - once after Japanese air raids during World War II, and again after Cyclone Tracy struck in 1974.
