Four wild and exhilarating adventures to get a real taste of the Northern Territory within coo-ee of Darwin….

1. Darwin Harbour Cruises 
Another way to experience the hypercolour Darwin sunset, the Sunset Cruise is a favourite with loved-up couples. A word of warning, though, don’t delay on the buffet or you’ll miss out! See: Darwin Harbour Cruises

2. Litchfield National Park Waterfalls
Darwin is the gateway to the outback and no trip is complete without a little walkabout. AAT Kings offer day trips to Litchfield National Park were you can spend time wallowing in crystal-clear waterholes.

3. Mindil Beach Sunset Market
This strip of market stalls run parallel to the sand dunes of Mindil Beach. Grab a satay stick and a trinket then head to the beach to watch the sun set over water. Raffles Plaza, 2/1 Buffalo Court, Darwin.

4. Wildlands Wetlands Safari
The early rise is well worth it for this incredible cruise along Corroboree Billabong. Ogle majestic birds and get alarmingly close to crocs as you slip through the quiet early-morning waters. See: Wildlands Wetlands Safari
