I have been to Darwin and surrounds as I had a son and family living there. I did not particularly like it the first time as I went when it was so hot and humid, it was difficult to breathe and I dont like humidity!

Next time I went in the cool season and met other relations there for my birthday and I really liked it this time -Darwin is casual and has a lot offering if you take trips out of there.

I have been to Alice Springs, when I was a flight attendant (100 years ago) we did a 5 day 'up the track' trip, going to and from Darwin a few times but staying in Alice (layng around the pool etc). Everyone looked forward to this on the roster as it was quite cushy and lots of free time....ho hum...memories...was great to see Ayers Rock too

Only as part of our trip to Uluru, but would love to go back and really explore. It's on the wish list!
No, but it's on my list of places that I want to visit.
I've never been to any part of Australia, but thanks to all that I've learned about the country here on HG, touring the country is certainly on my bucket list.
It's a lot of touring as it si so big and the western/northern sides are so far away. Hope you make it! All Canadians/Americans I know who have visited here, love it.

I have never been but it's on my wish list of places to visit - along with lots of other destinations!!!

Sadly no.
I wish I could, that of course is on my bucket list!
Oh Yeah! :)
It is I am told a very special place, from other parts of Australia.
well, it is different shall I say! You dont need any good clothes -just thongs and shorts.
by Finy
well Finy that's too easy :) loving it already.
Except for the thongs? LOL.

I've only been once, ages ago, but only as far north as Tennant Creek. I love it though and hope to get to Darwin one day. It's such a unique part of Australia...so laid-back, and the outback landforms are spectacular. A few years ago my family and I attempted to get there on an extended camping holiday from Perth, where we live. However, we stopped halfway in Broome, and liked it so much there that we didn't get any further.
No, but I would love to.

When I was 15,we went on a fabulously memorable trip from Melbourne,by bus.We went through Western Victoria and over into South Australia.From Adelaide we headed north into the Northern Territory where we were lucky enough to sleep under the stars a couple of nights before spending 2 days and nights in Alice Springs,so we could journey out to Ayers Rock and The Olgas.It was amazing and very memorable as there were no restrictions in those days and we actually walked the entire baseline of the Rock and saw amazing caves and paintings.We were lucky to have a wonderful indigenous guide who took us to some truly superb little spots. We camped on the river bank in Alice Springs and were horrified to wake in the night to find everything inundated with water,thanks to the first rain in 3 years!!! The dusty track of the river actually became a fast-flowing waterway for the first time in ages,and was a real sight to be seen!! We also were very lucky to see the glorious Sturt's Desert Peas in bloom in the wild thanks to the rain! The journey continued up to Tennant Creek before heading East to Mount Isa in Queensland and then on to Townsville before heading home through the coastal route all the way down to NSW and then home to Victoria,
Yes I did a road trip around Australia in 77.
It was wild and exciting but I had 3 separate close calls with weird and dangerous people while out camping. I later read that the road from Darwin to Queensland was renown for a high murder rate at that time. Lucky it was only my dog who had a more protective nature than mine or else the 2 girls and I who where traveling together may not have made it to Brisbane.
Yes. I flew to Uluru from Sydney. The pilot flew around the rock before we landed. I did not climb the Rock in respect of the Indigenious peoples request for people not to climb this sacred site.
No never. I believe it is absolutely beautiful. However, after reading a book re a crime that was committed there a few years ago, i don't know that I want to go see it now. Seemed, in the book, that it was a little feral and the people were too.
Yes, some of them are, but I felt quite safe there, even at night walking around.
by Finy
Well Finy,
I don't think you and I read the same book. Apart from the book, even the news coverage of the crime - showing the lie of the land and some of the locals was enough to put me off forever.

Yes, I’ve been to Alice Springs & we have visited friends 4/5 times who live in Darwin, always in May. We went out on a boat once looking for crocs, & we saw a few of them! We’ve also enjoyed the Liechfield National Park, & swam in the waterfalls, been to Fogg Dam, the small Darwin Art gallery & Museum, at Fanny Bay. we’ve also visited the Casino for a free morning tea, markets, walked around parks, & our friend even bought us tickets to visit Parliament House, which was very interesting. Once we were driven out to Kunnunurra, via 13 minutes in Katherine! We were taken to look at the Ord River, but I can’t remember what else we did there now! Next we’d love to go to Uluru & Kakadu
