When you don’t know what to get that special someone, sometimes the best thing you can give is an experience!
If 2020 has taught us anything so far – it’s that NOW is the time for Territorians and Australian’s alike to explore our own backyard.
We’ve pulled together a list of all the best adveNTures to give your partner, to all chip in for your mates, or even something for your mum…
CAGE OF DEATH
How many times have you and your mates walked past Croc Cove and thought – we really should do that one day! The Crocodile ‘Cage of Death’ experience is located within Crocosauras Cove and allows you to watch your friend (or go with them!) while being lowered into the water with massive saltwater crocs, in a ‘Cage of Death’ – EPIC!
DARWIN AIRBOAT TOURS
See the sights and get your blood pumping with this V8 Airboat tour – an easily accessible adrenaline rush in Darwin Harbour. The custom-built Airboat takes groups of up to 12 people on a one-hour ride past the beautiful coastline, marine life, and mangroves, finishing off with some unforgettable fast laps around the harbour.
OUTBACK FLOATPLANE ADVENTURES
The Ultimate Outback Tour is an action-packed half-day adventure designed in a way that allows you to experience the NT at its BEST!
Nothing says ‘epic gift’ like airboats, floatplanes, and the big names of the NT – crocs, buffalo, wild boars, and Barramundi – all in the same day!!
DECKCHAIR CINEMA MEMBERSHIP
How good is being able to watch movies in a deckchair in the endless summer that is Darwin? So good. How often do you do it? Probably not as often as you’d like to!
A Deckchair Cinema membership gives you 4 free members screenings per year, 4 free tickets to use at Deckchair Cinema or Flix in the Wet, and Members’ only ticket prices! The perfect gift for your mates, your partner, or your parents. (And the best bit? You can probably claim some of their free tickets too!)
Barramundi Adventures Darwin is a land-based, catch and release barramundi fishing farm. The fishing ponds are designed to mimic the surrounding wild estuarine environment where amongst an abundance of Barramundi you can also find Mangrove Jack, Golden Snapper, crabs, prawns, and many other aquatic species. A great gift for your mate who just wants to catch a fish!
An epic idea as a simple gift voucher – or as a full-blown ‘get everyone together and make it a party’ gift – Sail Darwin is an unforgettable 3-hour tropical sunset cruise on the magnificent Darwin Harbour, that includes sparkling wine & delicious tapas, and an always brilliant Darwin sunset.
For a more laid-back experience, head out for fresh, local, wild caught fish & chips at sunset with Sea Darwin, an adventure where you will see the harbour at the best time of the day, hear the stories and music of the Top End of Australia and experience local Darwin hospitality!
If you’re really looking to go all out – there is no better way than a Helifish or Helipub crawl !
Is there anything that says ‘we love you’ in a more ‘Territory’ way than flying around to classic Top End pubs in a chopper? BEST. DAY. EVER.
AND if you’re really keen – Airborne Solutions have also combined two favourite tours (heli-fish and heli-pub) to bring you an action-packed morning of fishing for Barra, then a laid back afternoon of Heli Pub Crawling.
DARWIN FESTIVAL GIFT VOUCHER
A Darwin Festival voucher is the perfect gift for a friend or loved one to choose their own festival experience from the unique 2020 Darwin Festival program – and if you’re lucky you might get to go along for the ride too!
TIWI ISLANDS BY DESIGN
Though it isn’t too far offshore, many people are yet to make their visit to the Tiwi Islands.
A highly personalised experience; this Sealink tour allows guests to explore, listen, and learn about life and culture in the Tiwi Islands – and participate in an exclusive ‘behind-the-scenes’ screen printing workshop. Your gift recipient will even take home their own wonderful Tiwi design on a t-shirt, tea towel or fabric!
