Darwin is a City like no other. Darwin does lack the shiny touristic hotspots when compared with Australia's major cities of Sydney and Melbourne. However, the city captures the understanding of how a weekend should be, in the pub or bar with an ice cold VB in your hand and telling your mate what a c*nt he is. Also, if you want to imitate big Paul Hogan then Darwin is the place to be with every tours main selling point being 'a big croc'.
