Darwin Travel Information
The Northern Territory coastal city lies along the Timor Sea. The capital city has a population of 136,245 residents and is the largest community in the territory. Home to the Aboriginal Larrakia people for thousands of years, the Dutch were the first Europeans to arrive during the 1600s. The harbour was later discovered in 1839 by the British and the site named Charles Darwin in honour of the naturalist. The small, rural community retained a population of 2,000 until after WWII, then growth gradually occurred. Geographically speaking, Darwin was established on a low bluff overlooking the sea and is predominantly flat.
The Native AboriginesDarwin has the largest population of Aborigines in the country. The native peoples comprise nearly 10% of the population. Aboriginal culture and heritage remain apparent through the local traditions, artwork and crafts displayed in museums. Ancient rock art in rural outlying areas dates back centuries. Locals willingly share their heritage with guests through guided tours and demonstrations.
Local CultureThough the city boasts residents from nearly 50 different world countries, Australians and English dominate the population and cultural influences. The atmosphere in Darwin is generally laid back and tropical. Though considered small and friendly, the city is largely modernised having been rebuilt after a devastating cyclone in 1974. The center for arts and culture, galleries and museums are plentiful. Dining, gazing at the sunset and watching catered movies under the stars are common pastimes. Though one can find virtually every type of cuisine here, traditional meals include a number of favourites that include buffalo, crocodile and kangaroo. Sporting events are also prevalent in Darwin and enthusiasts find everything from basketball and cricket to football, rugby and auto racing.
