EXPLORING THE TERRITORY
When an opportunity presents … we should take it.
Want to explore?
Darwin and surrounds is one of those bucket list places. The road to Kakadu is great. One turn-off and a couple of hours later you're well into Kakadu with just an ordinary hire car. Go off the beaten track with a 4WD if you want more adventure. There are lots of tour companies that will take you in any direction, many of them Indigenous owned businesses. Litchfield National Park is easily accessible in a day trip.
Or stay in Darwin and explore this unique little city with its WW2 history and the secret oil tunnels, the historic Fanny Bay Gaol and, of course, its fishing, harbour cruises, or crocodile adventures (yes, they like their crocs in Darwin).
Doing Darwin on a budget is easy. There are a heap of free things, like the famous sunset market at Mindil Beach, marvel at the tropical lushness of the botanic gardens, meander through Darwin's museum and art gallery, or donate a couple of dollars and explore the secret oil tunnels museum used in WW2. You can even take in a movie at the Deckchair Cinema, outdoors of course.
FCA organised 'look-about' tours
FCA will be organising a few tours exclusively for our conference goers, and our aim is to set these up with Indigenous businesses and to make it easy for you to head out of town to see something natural, beautiful and involving water and culture.
We're organising a 1-day (Monday), and 2-day tour (Sunday/Monday). Stay tuned and then book quickly as spots will be limited.
Or ask your colleagues to join you for a few days after the conference. Hire a car and off you go. It's a wonderful opportunity.
