Of all our tours, this one covers the most ground. Right after we treat you to some fabulous gourmet food at the first of three restaurants, we'll show off some of Darwin's fabulous street art by walking up Austin Lane and then West Lane. If you're into massive artworks, this tour show you more of them than any other tour we do. See giant artworks come to life with the aid of augmented reality, which makes them jump off the walls--a fantastic, futuristic feature. This tour also takes in a bit more history than some of our other tours, including a stop at our iconic Town Hall ruins, the Star Arcade and more.

Stop At: 7 Kitchener Dr Darwin Waterfront Precinct, Darwin, Northern Territory 0800 Australia
The Darwin Waterfront is in the heart of Darwin's CBD, just walking distance from Smith Street Mall and the Esplanade.
Experience the best of Darwin's tropical lifestyle with lush parklands, a man-made beach along the saltwater recreation lagoon, and Darwin's most popular attraction, the Wave Lagoon. We'll start your tour at Snapper Rocks, one of Darwin's finest seafood restaurants, featuring the freshest catch from our local fleet. From here we'll ascend a five-storey glass elevator and walk across a skybridge on our way along the spectacular escarpment.
Duration: 1 hour
Pass By: Hughes Avenue, Hughes Ave, Darwin City NT 0800, Australia
Hughes Avenue is historically significant as one of the first roadways established in Darwin.
From 1869, Hughes Avenue served as the main pedestrian and transport corridors between Goyder's Camp and the port below, and the town of Palmerston with newly established government buildings on the escarpment on the plateau above. The Hughes Avenue alignment was used to transport goods from the jetty area to the growing city above until completion of Stokes Hill Wharf in 1887. The current alignment of Hughes Avenue is virtually identical to that established by Goyder and his party. Beginning opposite the Courthouse and Police Station (Administrator's Offices) at the end of Smith Street, the descent along Hughes Avenue provides views of Government House on the hill above and vistas of the port and harbour below. These provide an insight into the daily activity experienced by Goyder and the first Europeans who landed in Port Darwin in February 1869.
Stop At: The Old Town Hall, 13 Smith St, Darwin, Northern Territory 0800 Australia
On Christmas Eve 1974, after almost a century enduring tropical conditions and 64 air raids during World War II, Darwin's Town Hall literally started crumbling during Cyclone Tracy. The heritage building—erected 14 years after European settlers arrived in the region in 1869—was damaged beyond repair by the natural disaster, as was much of the city. We’ll have photo opportunities at this heritage-listed site, a testament to the destructive power of the cyclone that destroyed much of Darwin.
Duration: 10 minutes
Stop At: Darwin Street Art, Austin Lane, Darwin, Northern Territory 0800 Australia
Darwin’s fabulous street art features augmented reality that brings the artwork to life. On this tour we'll see more street art than on any other tour. Includes futuristic effects that make art pieces sing and move around and fly over our heads. A favourite of locals and visitors alike.
