As the capital of the beautiful Northern Territory, Darwin is fast becoming one of Australia’s most vibrant and popular cities for travellers to visit.
But with a wide variety of attractions, culinary delights, and must-visit locations across the city, it can be overwhelming to decide where to stay – and what type of accommodation will suit you best. Darwin has it all; hotels, villas, campgrounds, suites, and beautiful resorts.
Here is a helpful list of things to look for when you’re choosing accommodation on your next trip to Darwin.
This is the most important factor in choosing accommodation. In Darwin, you’ll be able to choose between luxury suites and resorts, mid-range hotels and serviced apartments, or more cost-effective hostels. There are also plenty of camping grounds in Darwin if you’d rather get a little closer to nature – this is another cost-effective option that you can tailor with amenities if you wish.
Similar to accommodation value, you’ll find the mid-high range accommodation types provide gorgeous views of Darwin Harbour, or offer easy access to the vibrant Darwin waterfront. If you’d rather stay in the middle of the city, a hostel or city centre hotel may be the perfect choice for you. Most of Darwin’s campsites and caravan parks are situated a few minutes’ drive out of town, so keep this in mind if you’re choosing to camp.
3. Onsite amenities and facilities
It’s no secret Darwin is an incredibly hot and humid city – so if you’re a little more susceptible to heat or hot weather, choosing accommodation with an onsite pool is a fantastic way to cool off after a day of exploring. Another non-negotiable for many travellers is an onsite café to eat breakfast at every morning, so this is another facility to consider when booking your accommodation. Certain hotels will also offer a spa, gym or bars, so setting an expectation for additional facilities before booking is a great way to ensure you stay at the perfect place for you.
4. Heritage and history of the area
The city is filled to the brim with history, and one of the best ways to experience it is on the Darwin Heritage Trail. This trail travels through Darwin’s CBD and along the waterfront, and could be a determining factor in a traveller’s choice of accommodation. If you’re a history buff, choosing accommodation that provides easy access to the trail is a great way to feel a part of Darwin’s rich history, and will allow you to tick off the town’s predominant heritage highlights with ease.
