Soaking it up in the beautiful Northern Territory

We’re in the Northern Territory soaking up the sun and the vibrant art scene in this part of the world. It’s a far cry from the dot paintings that you see in the tourist shops in Sydney. The art scene up here is thriving and there are a staggering number of galleries to visit. Darwin is filled with hip and happening galleries packed to the rafters with contemporary local and indigenous art…

A mix of cultures and an abundance of tropical produce means you’re never bored with the food. One of the best places to experience this is at one of the many markets around the city, all with their own very distinct personalities.

The Parap Village Markets are the place to be on a Saturday morning. For breakfast or brunch and pick up the ingredients for dinner while you get to know the locals because they’re all here catching up and hanging out!

Get to the Territory… seriously… you don’t know what you’re missing!
