What you'll see

Welcome to Darwin! Your journey begins in the spirited capital of the Northern Territory, renowned as the gateway to the Top End, where a stirring mix of diverse cultural influences and tropical beauty are capped off by sunsets sure to leave you speechless.

Your journey begins with a shared coach transfer from Darwin Airport (DRW) with your fellow travellers to Mindil Beach Casino Resort, where a sublime stay awaits. Backed by the lush George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens and facing spectacular views over Fannie Bay’s shimmering waters, this premium beachside retreat is the perfect place to begin your outback odyssey. With the entire resort reserved for Luxury Escapes guests, you are guaranteed extraordinary moments from your very first evening in the Top End.

After check-in, the afternoon is yours to spend at your leisure before a sophisticated welcome dinner for all guests on the resort’s spectacular main lawn. Sip a complimentary welcome cocktail as you watch the sun fall beneath the bay in an explosion of colours, and take the opportunity to meet and greet with your fellow travelers. Head to the resort’s Pavilion for an elegant three-course welcome dinner, including a Welcome to Country ceremony performed by the traditional Indigenous Australian owners of the land, a presentation on the Ghan and acoustic live music throughout. Your dinner is accompanied by free-flowing house beer and wine.
