Explore Darwin On Foot
Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory. Darwin contains the majority of the residents of the sparsely populated Northern Territory, with an estimated population of 147,255 as of 2019.
The greater Darwin area is the ancestral home of the Larrakia people. On 9 September 1839, HMS Beagle sailed into Darwin Harbour during its survey. John Clements Wickham named the region Port Darwin. The settlement became the town of Palmerston in 1869, but it was renamed Darwin in 1911.
Darwin has been almost entirely rebuilt four times, following the devastation caused by the 1897 cyclone, the 1937 cyclone, Japanese air raids during World War II, and Cyclone Tracy in 1974.
Exploring Darwin on foot allows the opportunity to discover the top-end city and hidden treasures.
