With a cornucopia of options for staying in the Darwin region, why is it important to stay in the Darwin Central Business District itself when you visit our region?
First, most tours and day-trips depart from Darwin City. And while some will stop at locations from Berrimah to Palmerston and well in to the Rural Area, almost all tours are based in Darwin City from either Bennett Street, Mitchell Street or the Darwin Waterfront. This makes staying in the CBD a wise move for easy walking to the various tours and bus services.
Another strong case for Darwin City accommodation is it's proximity to public transport. Most bus routes in the greater Darwin region originate in Darwin City. You can take a bus to East Point, Casuarina, Nightcliff, Berrimah, Palmerston and even Coolalinga, Howard Springs and Humpty Doo. Many routes don't even require you to change buses.
If a variety of dining options is important to you, Darwin City's CBD can't be matched by any other part of our region for its variety of restaurants, cafes, pubs and formal dining. Palms City Resort is within a 2 minute walk of nearly 15 eateries. Expand that walk to 5 minutes and you're faced with the choice of over 30. And you'll find a wide range of cuisines; from pub-grub to sushi, steakhouse, Indian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Mongolian, Modern Australian, Turkish and much, much more.
If easy access to attractions is top of your list, then staying in a Darwin CBD accommodation venue like Palms City Resort gives you walking access to the Darwin Cenotaph, Bicentennial Park, the bars and nightlife of Mitchell Street, Smith Street Mall for shopping, the Darwin Waterfront and Deckchair Cinema, Aquascene, Crocosaurus Cove, Stokes Hill Wharf, the Darwin Convention Centre, cinemas, the Darwin Entertainment Centre, historic homes, the City Library, in addition to Parliament House, which is conveniently just across the road from us! Darwin CBD is at the centre of Darwin's attractions.
Perhaps the greatest reason for staying in Darwin's CBD is the feeling of being in the city. The people, the colour, the sounds, cultures, art, music, sights and smells of a city can't be matched in the suburbs or rural area. And when all is said and done, after a day of bus tours and attractions, it's nice to know that you can come home to clean, modern accommodation that is close to supermarkets, services and amenities.
So when you next stay in the Darwin region, make Palms City Resort your home-away-from-home, and enjoy the life of the city all within a tropical garden setting.
