This is the city to stay in if you are going to the Outback. We were not here long enough to take advantage of that. Nice compact city walkable from the port area, although it was very hot the day we were there. Free internet in the shopping area.

With a laid-back tropical feel, some gorgeous coastline, good food and decent attractions like the Botanic Gardens and MAGNT, it's a fun spot in its own right for a couple of days before you head off deeper into the Territory.

Hot, humid, damn hot. Very casual town, with a very young transient population.
