Arnhem Land is one of the regions of Australia’s Northern Territory. It is located in the northeastern part of the territory and is about 500 kilometers to the east of its capital, Darwin. It comprises 97,000 square kilometers and contains the Kakadu National Park.
This laid-back capital is known for its live entertainment, natural beauty and a multicultural vibrancy that pulses through the city day and night. Darwin is a thoroughly modern port, with a long and rich history. The original inhabitants are the Larrakia people. Its first European visitor was John Clements Wickham, who arrived in 1839 and named the area in honor of Charles Darwin. Nearly destroyed by air raids during WWII and again by Cyclone Tracy in 1974, the city has been proudly rebuilt twice.
