3. Watch A Movie Under The Stars

Have you ever watched a movie in open air and dined under the stars? Darwin lets you do that! With a beautiful setting by the ocean, enjoy delicious street food style dinner. Watch a movie with a laidback ambiance under the tropical starry night sky. 

4. Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruise

Two hours away from Darwin, drive down to the Litchfield National Park. See huge crocodiles launching themselves vertically out to claim dangling meat. Watch these creatures up close in the wild as cruises run several times a day.

There are more than 80,000 Saltwater Crocodiles roaming the Northern Australia waterways, but they are rarely ever seen. The crocodile is a cold blooded animal, in the cooler months of June, July and August you can see them basking in the sun. In the warmer months crocodiles bury themselves in the mud or hide under the shade of a tree. The crocodiles know the boats, they leave their place of hiding, knowing they may be fed. This happens all year round!! ?? #australia #darwin #crocodile #NTaustralia @AusOutBackNT #SingaporeAir @Singaporeair @SilkAir #SilkAir #CurlyTales #traveller #travelvlogger #indiantravelvlogger #kamiyajani #AusOutBackNT

5. Take A Dip In Natural Pools 

One of the things to do when in Australia is to swim in the natural water pools. This one doesn’t have crocodiles, jump in! Water from springs and rains have created a number of impressive waterfalls. Swim in Florence falls or Buley Rockhole as the plunge pool is perfect for swimming.
