The city is cosmopolitan and has attracted the people of at least 56 nationalities to call Darwin their home. Darwin is an important port city and a commercial centre for the region. Modern day Darwin is an outdoor city, where crowds mingle at makeshift markets, restaurants, and at pubs. The city has many outdoor public places and hosts numerous festivals.

Sightseeing

Budapest found in Hungary

A magnificent facade and lush interiors decorated in the style of the Italian Renaissance. The State Opera House auditorium has seating for 1200 persons. The 3 floors are decorated with gold colours, and the ballrooms and the staircase are decorated with magnificent frescoes.

Nightlife

The Radium Beerhall

Johannesburg found in South Africa

The Radium Beerhall is the oldest surviving bar and grill in Johannesburg, with a genuinely historic ambience that's just as enticing as the good food on the menu; as authentic as the foot-tapping live jazz that makes the embossed tin ceiling vibrate in sympathy. The walls are covered in memorabilia, from photos of pre-war soccer teams and jazzmen who have played there, to vintage posters and press clippings that record the Radium's history. The spit-and-sawdust era ended in 1986 with the advent of Manny Cabeleira, a colourful character who added some Portuguese flair and replaced the billiard room with a restaurant. It was a new Radium, anticipating the New South Africa by quite a few years with a vibrant cosmopolitan mix of new customers, included blacks -- and women, who had been banned during the macho epoch. Then came live music, TV shoots and the start of a Radium Tradition -- the Fat Sound 19-piece jazz band on the first Sunday of every month. Now the Jazzed-Up Radium has live performances by different artists four nights a week. Since 1994 it has won an international reputation, featured in overseas travel guides as a genuine South African experience, and a "must" for tourists passing through Johannesburg.
