DARWIN, NORTHERN TERRITORY There’s an odd mix of outback, Asia, Aboriginal


and bohemian hippy in the Northern Territory capital, plus a few rather unusual attractions. On Stokes Hill Wharf, a combined facility demonstrates how the Royal Flying Doctor Service supplies medical care to the vast outback, while also offering high- tech virtual-reality recreations of the Second World War bombing of Darwin. The highlight of the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory is the amazing


simulation of Cyclone Tracy, which nigh-on destroyed the city on Christmas Day, 1974. But the most memorable activity in Darwin is likely to be the Cage of Death at Crocosaurus Cove, where you’re lowered into the enclosure of a giant saltwater crocodile, protected only by a see-through acrylic box. Book it: The superior lagoon king rooms at the Skycity Darwin

complex are pretty special. They offer private terraces with steps down into the huge pool. Rates start at £239 per person, with Deluxe Rooms from £64, through Inspired by Australasia. inspiredbyaustralasia.co.uk

TOWNSVILLE, QUEENSLAND There are trips that head out to the Great Barrier


Reef from northern Queensland’s largest city, although those going from Port Douglas and Cairns are closer to the fish and coral. The Reef HQ Aquarium, however, is a fantastic place to understand how the reef works, and there’s also a turtle hospital on site. The Museum of Tropical Queensland covers everything from dinosaurs to rainforest ecosystems, too. But Townsville’s biggest


draw is Magnetic Island. The island, which is technically a suburb and a short ferry ride away, has fabulous beaches, blissful walking trails, Second World War history and lots of wild koalas. Book it: The classy, refined Peppers Blue on Blue combines apartments with resort accommodation on Magnetic Island. Rooms cost from £78 a night for a two-night minimum stay, for travel up to June 27. peppers.com.au/blue-on-blue
