When the tour was put together the advised flight from Singapore to Darwin was an overnight flight with Jetstar Asia, and a lot of the group had not researched the alternative which I had found with SilkAir. Arriving at 5 am from the early flight the group were a little groggy but they arrive at our hotel at 7:00am to have breakfast and drop off the luggage before we headed out to visit the Territory Wildlife Park.
Our driver, Jeff, was incredible with his knowledge of the Northern Territories, its history and its wildlife. The trip to the Wildlife Park was good as it gave us a overview of the the animals we would be seeing at close quarters and also some of the plants.
Once we had visited the park we returned to Darwin for lunch on the waterfront, before heading to the Botanic Gardens for the afternoon.
