Food & Drink

Barramundi (fish) is the native speciality. Dining out has been made even more special by the addition of new restaurants at Cullen Bay Marina, offering outdoor dining with stunning ocean views. Cuisine from many countries, including Malaysian, Japanese, Greek, Creole, Indian, Mongolian and Thai, is available in Darwin’s restaurants.

Shopping

Darwin specialities include Outback clothing and Aboriginal artefacts. Aboriginal items, bush clothing and opals are available in Alice Springs. Darwin’s markets are brilliant attractions.

Nightlife

There is plenty of exciting nightlife in Darwin, which also boasts the MGM Grand Darwin, built in an astonishing modern architectural style. This A $30 million casino complex also includes luxury accommodation, restaurants, discos and sporting and convention facilities and is surrounded by flourishing gardens perched along the shores of Mindil Beach. Alice Springs also has a casino.
