Casuarina Campus, Darwin

  • Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory, is dynamic, different, diverse and constantly evolving as Australia's most cosmopolitan city. Its relaxed tropical lifestyle is enjoyed by a population of approximately 77,000. Darwin is home to people from more than 60 nationalities and 70 different ethnic backgrounds.

    Darwin's traditional owners, the Larrakia people, are prominent and active members of the community, and many still adhere closely to their traditional beliefs and customs.

    Darwin’s weather is perfect from May to September when mild and sunny days are followed by balmy nights - wonderful weather for enjoying the great outdoors, day and night. The dry season is also the peak tourist season when Darwin receives the most visitors. Being a monsoonal climate there is a distinctive wet season period, with most rain falling between December and March. There can be high intensity storms at this time, often providing spectacular lightning displays.
  • Darwin has evolved from its days as an incredibly laid back frontier town and while it still retains its relaxed charm, it has become a highly sophisticated multicultural city.

    For anglers, Darwin Harbour is known around Australia and the world as a world class fishing destination where barramundi, jewfish, giant trevally and other iconic Top End fish thrive. Darwin provides diverse recreational services, facilities and a wide range of sporting activities. Additionally, there is a comprehensive Arts program and the Darwin Entertainment Centre attracts world class performers to suit everyone’s cultural taste.
