Darwin with Kids & Exploring Australia’s Top End

Exploring Australia’s Top End and Darwin with kids was definitely a little different to our usual holidays especially when we decided it would be a 4WD camping trip (insert totally shocked emoji). Having a 4WD enabled to access some of the more remote areas and to explore the best Australia’s Top End has to offer families. We’ve wanted to visit Kakadu National Park for a long time and also had the opportunity to explore the best things to do in Darwin with kids.  (more…)
