If you like to be in the heart of the action, the energy and youthful aurora of Darwin will certainly satisfy your requirements. Tropical in climate, there is a real uniqueness to Darwin which separates itself from many other Australian cities.
The city is very cosmopolitan and all life can be found here from traditional markets including Mindel beach sunset market, museums, galleries and nightlife all offering plenty for both traveller and student.
As expected nature is a strong feature to Darwin's draw and the National Parks Of Kakadu and Litchfield are a few hours drive outside the city. Also being a harbour, Darwin naturally has a great water sport scene including fishing and sea kayaking in the Timor Sea. Being hot and humid, it's easy to develop a thirst and the nightlife certainly delivers with many a trendy bar and traditional pub.
The main place to head for is Mitchell Street in the city centre which is home to many a popular night spot. Alternatively for more modern establishments check out the Waterfront Precinct area. Naturally Darwin is a multicultural, progressive and vibrant city with a population of around 145,000 and is particularly popular with students from neighbouring cities and towns in South East Asia.
Employment rates are good here for skilled workers so students wishing to settle here after graduation have a good chance of securing a graduate job. Darwin is an ultimate student destination and your time here will no doubt be amazing. Urban sprawl meets Australian outback and add in the thriving tourism and multicultural feel and you will have a student experience like no other.
