Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory in Australia. Situated on the Timor Sea, Darwin is the largest city in the sparsely populated Northern Territory, with a population of 136,245. It functions as the Top End’s regional centre and was originally a pioneer outpost.
The city is built on a low bluff overlooking the harbour, with suburbs sprawling out over some area, from Lee Point in the north to Berrimah in the east. The Darwin region, like the rest of the Top End, has a tropical climate, with a wet and a dry season.
