Car Rental Darwin Downtown

The mere mention of Darwin evokes images of giant saltwater crocs and jaw-dropping waterfalls, yet few consider the many attractions that lie within Darwin’s city centre. Young Aussies and international travellers alike visit the Northern Territory’s capital to relax and unwind by the beach, partake in night time festivities, or learn a thing or two about its wartime history. 

Of course, however, no trip to Darwin would be complete without at least one day exploring the city’s surrounding parklands, where adventurers rejoice in the plethora of picturesque walking trails, swimming holes, and panoramic views. 

With a vast array of options on the table, Darwin is no place for a day trip. Spend at least 3 days in this quirky capital for a truly authentic Aussie experience, made famous on the international stage by the 1986 film, The Crocodile Hunter. All you need is a hire car and an empty camera roll. 

Culture cravings are satisfied in Darwin’s Downtown precinct

A first stop for many travellers to Darwin is its shady Esplanade. Positioned on the cliffs of Darwin Harbour, the esplanade offers the perfect place to relax and unwind, with plenty of room to spread out on the grass to soak up panoramic views over the Timor Sea. Situated just two minutes by hire car from the city centre, the esplanade is a central attraction easily accessed from any corner. 

After a bite to eat under the palms, follow the World War II walking trail along the seafront - a significant site of Australia’s military past. 

Afterwards, stroll down to the end of the esplanade to Doctor’s Gully. Here, visitors are encouraged to feed the milkfish, bream, mullet and barramundi which gather in their hundreds to be hand-fed in the water’s shallows. Children especially are thrilled by this unusual wildlife encounter mere minutes from Darwin’s CBD. 

Top off the afternoon with a look around Darwin’s unique boutiques, galleries and markets. Discover vibrant treasures made from locally sourced materials, making for the ideal souvenir for friends and family back home, or to keep as a personal memento. Pore over the precious pearls, aboriginal artworks, and (perhaps more controversially) the crocodile skin belts, bags and homewares. 

There’s plenty to see and do in Darwin’s downtown, made even easier with the many available parking spaces to safely leave your hire car. 

Experience Darwin’s nightlife first hand 

Darwin’s tropical climate makes for excellent beer drinking weather, so it’s no surprise vacationers like to end their day of nature walks with a ‘cold one’. Famous for its party life, the atmosphere in Darwin after night falls is simply palpable, and a must experience for any stay - especially for those travelling without children. 

Bypass the backpacker hotspots and make your way to Six Tanks, where over 36 varieties of craft beers are served on tap straight from the tank. Not only that, Six Tanks has a delicious menu of treats crafted by Darwin’s best chefs to complement your choice of beer or wine. Choose from a selection of woodfired pizzas, charcuterie boards, or a classic parma to really satisfy your hunger. Located on Mitchell Street, a visit to Six Tanks is a mere 15 minute drive from the airport by hire car, right in the heart of Darwin's atmospheric CBD. If you’re paying Six Tanks a visit, ensure you follow all local rules and have a designated driver.
