For New Year’s Eve, Darwin is Australia’s northern most capital city. Most of the fireworks activities are centered near the Wharf area. Darwin is Australia’s smallest city by population but it is a pocket rocket in terms NYE enthusiasm. If you are in Darwin for NYE or intend to be there you can guarantee for a good time!
In terms of places to go there are plenty of options for restaurants and pub type events and the cost per person is not in the ball park of the larger more commercial capital cities.
