Rich in cultural heritage, known for its balmy weather, and boasting an eclectic dining scene, the laid-back city of Darwin is a visitor's delight. Explore the sights from atop a double-decker bus and set your own pace around the Northern Territory's biggest town.

This hop-on hop-off adventure hits all the top attractions, giving you plenty of time to explore sites like the Darwin Military Museum or get up close and personal with crocodiles in the Cage of Death at Crocosaurus Cove. Zip around the city, hopping on and off at your leisure to immerse yourself in Darwin's mix of frontier heritage and modern bustle.

At the Aquascene Fish Feeding at Doctors Gully, watch the tide bring in an array of gentle fish species and wade into the water to feed them bread. Wander around the SKYCITY Casino, shop for arts and crafts at the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets and check out the pools, waterfalls and tropical scenery of the Botanic Gardens.

Visit The Defence of Darwin Experience to discover Darwin's role during World War II, and check out the city's shopping, dining, and entertainment scene at the Parap Markets, Waterfront District, and Fort Hill Wharf. Your pass lets you hop back on the bus as many times as you'd like, so be sure to keep it handy as you tour.

All drivers were very knowledgable and helpful. Good value for money and it gave you an overall picture of what was available in the region.

5/5 Sep 11, 2018

Good staff , very contentious could help enough, good on board commentary ,good selection of stops , morning does the local city stops and in the afternoon goes out to the east point military museum (defence of Darwin experience). I had the deluxe ticket which was rfds /bombing of Darwin and crocosaurs cove ,although you could buy-tickets for any attraction they stopped at a reduced price. Only thing I would say the circuit is quite short at about 1 hour ,most people the 24 hour ticket would be enough.
