Small-Group Tour: Highlights of Darwin Bike Tour
USD 51.88
Overview

Get an overview of this small city without the risk of getting lost, on a small-group cycle tour. Your guide will take you past must-see sites like the Darwin Waterfront, Botanical Gardens, and more, while telling you about the city’s history. The intensity of the ride can be adjusted to suit your group’s needs, and there will be plenty of rest and photography stops, if you need them.

What to Expect
Meet up with your guide at 8:00 am to begin your biking adventure through Darwin. Darwin is mostly flat with some hills which will offer a fairly easy ride. The pace is set by the slowest rider to ensure no one is left behind. Expect to bike between 15-20km with frequent stops to see points of interest. You will have about 5 minutes at each stop to get a brief overview of each sight. Sights include:
  • Darwin Waterfront
  • Stokes Hill Wharf
  • World War II Oil Tunnels
  • World War II Memorials
  • Esplanade
  • Chinese Temple
  • Government House
  • Parliament House
  • Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory
  • Botanical Gardens

You may also request stops at particular sights that you'd like to see along the way. Take this opportunity to orient yourself with the city and determine which sites you'd like to visit afterward on your own. You will be provided a hybrid 21-speed Avanti Discovery bike equipped with a carrier or basket for your personal items. There will be a stop for coffee along the way (own expense) to boost your energy.

After 3.5 hours of biking, sightseeing, and discovery with your small group, your tour will conclude at approximately 11:30am with a return to the meeting point where you will be free to explore the sights more in-depth on your own.
