Before you head on to the next leg of exploring the natural wonders of the Northern Territory, Shelby has scheduled a night in Darwin to explore one of Australia’s most appealing capital cities. With a laid-back, tropical feel, Darwin can feel worlds apart from Melbourne and Sydney on the other side of the country. Just a short walk from your hotel for the night, the Oaks Élan Darwin, you’ll find the Waterfront Precinct but, if possible, Shelby will arrange your itinerary so you are in the city on a Thursday or Sunday evening so you can visit the famous Mindil Beach Market. From Aprit to October, this market features food stalls serving the best of Southeast and South Asian cuisine and others selling local crafts starting at sunset.
