Local departures to Darwin
Darwin is a young city; a great, laid back, multicultural town at the Top End. It recently received the stamp of approval from travel bible Lonely Planet, which named it as one of the top ten places in the world to visit.
If you're considering taking cheap flights to Darwin, bear in mind that there are six seasons: Monsoon (December-March), "Knock 'em" down storm season (April), Cooler but still humid (May-June), Cold weather (June-August), Hot dry weather (August-October) and the Pre-monsoon storm season (October). Locals like to joke that it's always 32 degrees; sometimes wet, sometimes dry but always 32 degrees.
Darwin has its fair share of cultural offerings. The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory tells the story of the region in five major permanent galleries while the historic Fannie Bay Gaol and Lyons Cottage are well worth a visit.
The city's greatest sights are provided by nature however. There are lots of tours devoted to the menacing crocodiles and Crocosaurus Cove, in the middle of the city, allows visitors to get as close as they like to the sharp-toothed reptiles. There's even a Cage of Death.
But strolling through the Mindil Beach markets (last Thursday in April until the last Thursday in October) and seeing the sun set over the ocean are reason enough to take flights to Darwin.
And, not far from Darwin are natural show stoppers such as Kakadu National Park and Litchfield National Park.
