Darwin Airport

Darwin Airport, Northern Territory, is on the Timor Sea and the capital city of the state. The population, as of the latest census, was 129,062 residents. Darwin Airport is the most populous city in the Northern Territory, and is the regional centre of Top End. Once a small outpost and port, it is now a modern, multicultural city with an ethnically diverse population. The Aborigines that spoke Larrakia occupied the land, prehistory. Trading routes had been established by the indigenous people to Southeast Asia. The Dutch were the first to explore the northern coastline, in the 1600s, and created the first maps. Arnhem Land and Groote Eylandt were names bestowed upon the settlements. Lt. John Lort Stokes of HMS Beagle entered the Darwin Airport Harbour in September of 1839. Commander John Clements Wickham, ship’s captain, named it for Charles Darwin, the naturalist, who had sailed on the Beagle previously. Gold was discovered in the late 19th century when employees for the Overland Telegraph Line were digging telegraph pole holes. The population grew with the influx of gold miners to the region. Trade union unrest was the order of the day in the early 20th century and was known as the Darwin Rebellion.

Crocodiles

While they might seem more threatening than interesting, there are more crocodiles in the Northern Territory’s Darwin Airport area than anywhere else on earth. The long-surviving reptiles include freshwater crocodiles, which are the least dangerous, and “salties,” which are huge, aggressive, and fierce. You can see them in captivity at croc parks and farms. If you’re brave, swim alongside them in the “cage of death,” an experience not for the faint of heart. You can take a tour and spot them in the wild, if you dare.

Tiwi Islands

If you take a day tour to the Tiwi Islands, you will immediately recognize why it is called the “Island of Smiles.” The Tiwi people are famous artists, working in mediums such as painting, weaving, and carving. Join the ‘morning tea ladies,’ serving damper and billy tea. These ladies are Tiwi women elders. Or witness a smoking ceremony and dancing, and discover its ritualistic meaning.
