This tropical area in the Northern Territory is full of natural beauty and historical presence, provides a sophisticated modern city along with many bush areas, lots of shorelines, a tremendous harbor and great cultural diversity. Renting a vehicle from one of the two Budget Rent a Car locations would be smart in order to explore the unending stretches of unspoiled coast and wilderness.
In the city of Darwin a great place to experience the tropical lifestyle is the Waterfront Precinct where you can go swimming in one of several lagoons, take a nice stroll on the walkways or dine alfresco and enjoy the tropical breezes. A Darwin Waterfront Heritage pamphlet is available for a self-guided tour through all the cultural and military history.
The Charles Darwin National Park is just a short drive in the Budget rental car. The park protects the Darwin Wetlands, the most significant wetland in Australia. In addition it also harbors many types of wildlife. The Aboriginal people lived here for thousands of years and it was a World War II military site.
With your Budget car hire you are easily able to go to all the beautiful beaches within the Darwin Region, and there are amazing sunsets here on gorgeous tropical evenings. Enjoy the sunsets while visiting the Mindil Beach Sunset Market, a very popular market on Thursdays and Sundays.
The Territory Wildlife Park is 45 minutes south of Darwin where you can get up close to many different types of wildlife. Enjoy more nature at Litchfield National Park, a 90 minute drive in the rental car, where you can swim and experience powerful waterfalls along with many other nature experiences.
Fishing for Barramundi is a very popular activity in this region, people come from around the world to catch this prized fish. The Mary River and the Daly River are just two of the locations where they thrive.
