I went with a group of friends from work. Even though it was teeming rain, it didn't deter us, or the tour operators. It's a bit like the duck tour in Singapore. You drive around Darwin city a bit, then into the water for a...More

What a wonderful, and unique way to see Darwin, in an amphibious vehicle. I have never been on this type of vehicle before, and it is FANTASTIC way to tour a city and its harbour. We had a lesuirely tour of Darwin City, which is...More

This tour should have been much better but most of it was spent bobbing about Fannie Bay looking for a glimpse of dugongs. We did enjoy the information on Darwin at the beginning of the tour and the experience of the LARC was great. Unfortunately...More

This is some thing a little different. You leave from The Tourist Centre & travel through the main part of the city centre to the Yacht Club where you go onto the bay. You get to see Darwin from the Harbour. Totally enjoyed the tour...More
