Named in honour of Charles Darwin by his shipmates on the HMS Beagle in 1839, Darwin in the Northern Territory is Australiaís northernmost capital city and the regional hub for the Top End. Severely damaged by Japanese bombing during WWII, Darwin was rebuilt only to suffer again on Christmas Eve in 1974 under the destructive forces of Cyclone Tracy. Rebuilt again, Darwin is now Australiaís most modern city with stunning architecture designed for its stormy tropical climate on the coast of the Timor Sea.
People of the Larrakia language group are the original custodians and occupiers of the Darwin region. For many centuries before European settlement, the Larrakia people traded goods with people from Makassar (Sulawesi) as well as other Aboriginal nations throughout Northern and Central Australia. Today Darwin is home to an amazing mix of people from a wide range of cultures, giving the city its trademark colourful vibe. And if you like fantastic food, head to the famous Mindil Beach Night Markets for dinner delights and a sunset stroll, or to the Nightcliff Markets for a tropical Sunday breakfast second to none.
Darwinís oldest building, the solid and stately Government House on The Esplanade, was built in the 1870s and has endured cyclones, earthquakes, bombing, and eating by termites. Darwinís oldest church, the Wesleyan Church, arrived in numbered parts by ship from Adelaide in 1897 and was specifically designed to withstand cyclones. A survivor of the bombing and later Cyclone Tracy, the church has been restored and relocated to the Darwin Botanic gardens.
