    Hello

    I am coming to Darwin with my girlfriend around the 1st of August, were are looking for things to do as a couple as we heard this time of year it is pretty much party central. We are going to do all the tours, but what else can you recommend for us if we want to chill out at night and places to stay that is not greatly expensive as we will be there for 3 weeks.

    Thanks Scott

      Hi Scott,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

      You shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a quieter getaway in and around Darwin if that’s what you’re after.

      If you’re looking for some accommodation options, consider checking out sites like Expedia, Hotels.com, Hotelscombined.com and Wotif. While they do list backpacker hostels (which would be the “party central”) areas you’re referring to, there are plenty of hotels, motels and apartments on offer as well with heaps of options in the Darwin CBD for less than $200 per night.

      If you’d really like to get away from it all, consider hiring a car from Hertz, Europcar, or Avis. Then, explore what the area’s known best for — it’s nature. Within a few hours drive, you can find Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park, Mary River National Park and plenty more. There are also nature retreats and serene resorts you can book if you don’t want to do the journey all in one day.

      Hope that helps!

      Alex
