George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens


Take a walk through the historic George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens to see a wide range of environments and flora of northern Australia, including 450 species of palms and plantings from Tiwi Island and Arnhem Land.

Wander through monsoon forests, coastal dunes, mangroves and open woodlands. You're sure to find something interesting in one of the few botanic gardens in the world that also has marine and estuarine plants occurring naturally in its grounds. See orchids, aroids, bromeliads and other striking foliage plants up close. There's a collection of about 400 species of palms and cycads, mostly in the rainforest gully that houses a waterfall and ponds. Discover the traditional indigenous uses of local plants when you take a self-guided walk devoted to Aboriginal plant use.

The Gardens were established in 1886 to introduce and evaluate plants for the new city, and have since become important in the recreational and scientific life of Darwin. They have survived severe cyclones, major wildfires and World War II. The Wesleyan Church, formerly located on the corner of Mitchell and Knuckey Streets in the city, has been restored and relocated to the gardens.

Nature's Way


Nature's Way is a scenic tourism drive through Kakadu and Nitmiluk National Parks. For photographic, wildlife and birdwatching enthusiasts, this is a dream drive on a fully sealed road suitable for a two-wheel-drive vehicle.

Further south is Katherine, the gateway to Nitmiluk National Park. Swim in the spring-fed crystal clear pool of the Katherine Hot Springs.

At Nitmiluk National Park, board a cruise, canoe down the gorge and spot birds, crocodiles and other native flora and fauna. On your return to Darwin stop off for a swim at Leliyn / Edith Falls.

National Tree Day


National Tree Day, proudly sponsored by Toyota, was co-founded in 1996 by Planet Ark and Olivia Newton John. It has now grown into Australia's largest community tree planting and nature protection event.

Planet Ark is calling on all active Australian and tourists to help them plant one million new native trees and shrubs across the country.

National Tree Day is a 'call to action' for everyone to put their hands in the earth and give back to the community. Each year about 300,000 people volunteer their time to engage in environmental activities that educate individuals about the world around them.

It's a day to venture outdoors and get to know the community, and most importantly, to have fun.
