Darwin International Airport (DRW)
City Orientation and Maps
(Darwin, Northern Territory (NT), Australia)
The city of Darwin can be found on the northern side of Australia and is the territorial capital of the Northern Territory. Located along the coastline, Darwin enjoys a small peninsula setting and lies directly east of both Waugite and Mandorah, across the water.
The very centre of Darwin is quite compact and is sited towards the end of the peninsula. Smith Street Mall is where you will find the majority of shops in the Darwin area and is located a short distance to the south-east of Daly Street, which ultimately leads to the Stuart Highway, a major road that loops much of the city and connects Darwin Airport (DRW), to the north-east.
