The Best Place To Take a First Date In Darwin

For the ultimate relaxed first date, meet up at one of Darwin’s favourite pubs, Squires Tavern. Sunshine, drinks and bar snacks in a beer garden are a great way to while away an afternoon getting to know your date. If it extends into the evening, get a meal at the bistro or relocate to a waterfront restaurant.

The Best Romantic Date In Darwin

Targeted at the serious carnivore, Char delivers simply extraordinary steaks, with descriptions that read like the tasting notes of a fine wine. If your date isn’t a steak lover they have a choice of local seafood dishes. Share a bowl of the chips with harissa mayo over sunset views and sea breezes and it will be a date to remember.

Visit the Mindil Beach Sunset Market. Wander the stalls selling fabulous food that are a reflection of Darwin’s multicultural heritage. Select from Thai, Sri Lankan and Indian, right through to Brazilian and Portuguese. Then simply cosy up on a picnic blanket underneath the coconut palms and watch the sun set!
