If you’re looking for your next winter escape, look no further. Darwin, a tropical paradise in the Top End of Australia, is the destination you’ve been searching for.

Filled with outdoor adventures, great weather, and a relaxed atmosphere, Darwin has it all. With a tropical climate and soaring temperatures all year round, there is no better place to escape the New Zealand winter. So pack your togs and jandals, and prepare for a trip across the Tasman.

Hit the Road with Ace

Many use Darwin as the base city for some epic Northern Territory adventures.

The ‘Top End’ is as varied as it is vast, with plenty of different landscapes throughout. You could have a low-key city break, enjoy endless fun by Darwin's oceanside pools, or visit the tropical rainforests and national parks that line the Top End, such as Kakadu or Litchfield. Or, you could even prepare for the trip of a lifetime and drive south to the ‘Red Centre’, and witness the Australian Outback in all its glory. Best of all,visiting these landscapes is entirely possible without even having to cross state lines!

The largest National Park in Australia is just a three-hour drive away. Kakadu National Park is simply massive - spanning nearly 20,000 kilometres squared in size. We recommend booking accommodation in the main town, Jabiru, so you can spend multiple days exploring the area. With sights like Jim Jim Falls calling this magnificent place home, you’ll likely want to stay a while.

Other excellent National Parks in the area include Litchfield National Park and Charles Darwin National Park. Bring your togs for Litchfield - it’s only a two-hour drive away and has natural water spots aplenty, with Florence Falls attracting thousands of eager swimmers each year. And, with soaring temperatures all year round, this national park is the perfect place for a cooling dip and a welcome break from the heat.

Of course, you may want to see the entirety of the Northern Territory for yourself while you’re here. Keep in mind that the territory is massive, and you’ll be driving long distances - but if you’re up for a challenge, the famed Uluru is 20 hours away by car. Book your stops in advance and plan out the route ahead - there are some glorious sights in between these two iconic places, so it’ll be well worth it if you want to have a holiday with a difference.

The Top End is an exciting place for a holiday. Make the most of your trip abroad, and book a trip to this classic Aussie destination. We'll meet you there, at Ace Darwin Airport.
