The annual two-week Darwin Festival (usually in August) is meant to discover the art and culture of the region's aboriginal peoples. I had the opportunity to visit for a day and there were many specialized art galleries. Several buses and excursions make the trip and go through the different stores. There are many concerts, markets, and exhibitions organized in the city center or nearby. You shouldn't miss the evening presentation of Indian dances in the botanical garden, with decorations created for the occasion. It's a dazzling experience and is perfectly integrated by the dancer's representation.
Don't miss the markets, every Thursday and Sunday afternoon during the dry season! You can stroll through the area enjoying the music (didgeridoo and percussion), the different cuisines of the world (crocodile kebabs, Thai recipes, French crepes, salads and exotic fruits), crafts of all kinds (jewelry, decoration, clothing, sculptures ), and attractions for children. There is something for all ages, cultures, and tastes here!
