Darwin is deep in Australia's tropical north, the capital of the Northern Territory. In the north-western corner of the Territory, the city sits on a wondrous harbour twice the size of Sydney's, and is well-situated for exploring not only the tropical wetlands of the 'Top End', but the deserts and arid lands to the south, including Uluru, the famed Ayers Rock.
