Setting sail from Darwin

More of a large town than a city, Darwin is less about what's contained within the city limits and more about the huge expanse of wild landscape that's outside it. Closer to Jakarta than Sydney, the city really does feel remote in its tropical perch. There are a number of waterfront restaurants and pretty parks, making it a pleasant place to relax after a long flight. For those with the energy we highly recommend a visit to Litchfield and Kakadu National Parks.

Our tip

Visit Litchfield National Park and embark on a crocodile-spotting boat trip, where you can see these intimidating, prehistoric beasts jump clean out of the water for a meal.

Arriving in Broome

Western Australia is a closed book to many UK visitors, and those who do choose this coast often get no further than Perth and the Margaret River. For travellers by ship, however, Broome is the gateway to the extraordinary Kimberley region. But that's not all: it is also the pearling capital of Australia and boasts fantastic white sand beaches and memorable sunsets. Very relaxed nowadays, Broome was the centre of the 'pearl rush' in the 1800s, which resulted in a real melting pot of cultures here, with Japanese, Filipino and Malay influences.

Don't miss

Visit a local pearl farm to learn all about this fascinating process, not to mention the history of the first pearlers. Shop for samples in Chinatown!
