Situated on the cliffs of Nightcliff this pool is one of the nicest spots on darwin to spend an afternoon or morning to take a swim.

Smith Street Mall - Playground - Darwin

Smith Street Mall - Playground

Smith Street Mall - Playground

In the middle of Darwin is the Smith Street Mall and in the middle of the mall is the playground. Another addition by the council i good resting spot for the kids when they're starting to get restless. Not as good as the larger playgrounds at Lake Alexander, the Watergardens or Lake Leanyer but still no location could beat the centreof the mall.

Address: Smith Street Mall, Darwin

Directions: Centre of the Mall

Darwins premier park and with views of the harbour it isnt hard to see why. A great place to spend a few hours walking, learning of the history this area played and taking in the wonderful views.

A must see to take in the views and walk upon well shaded paths.

Wangi Falls Walk

Litchfield National Park - Wangi Falls Walk

To the left of Wangi Falls (walk down to within 50 metres of the falls) is a walking trail that goes up and around the top of the falls. Offering some views of the valley but little of the top of the falls this is an enjoyable short walk with some nice rainforest and escarpment sections.

Length: 2 km
Difficulty: easy with a few step sections.

Address: Wangi Falls
