What's New To Do in the NT

The NT dry season is in full swing with festivals galore and new experiences popping up all over the region. From new hotels and educational programs, to a number of hot cafes and bars, there's always something new to do in the NT.
What's Hot in Darwin
Darwin's food scene is rapidly evolving, just check out some of the many new places that have popped up around the city! 
Djilpin Arts Djakanimba Pavillions Beswick
The new Djilpin Arts architect-designed guest facility features four new stylish Djakanimba Pavillions and simple elevated pavilion rooms located in the heart of Beswick Community, a remote but accessible Indigenous community just 100kms from Katherine via a sealed road. The rooms are well appointed with queen beds, air conditioning, a small fridge and breezy verandahs to enjoy the surrounding views. Guests' room rates are contributed straight back into a local Not for profit Indigenous enterprise that supports remote art, culture, training and employment.
Squeaky Windmill  
This new boutique glamping accommodation is situated at the base of the scenic West MacDonnell Ranges just 15km from Alice Springs, close to the iconic Larapinta Trail and Ilparpa Claypans. The Squeaky Windmill suites are air conditioned and feature electric blankets for the cooler months, have a private ensuite, kitchenette and baby Weber-Q. Guests can enjoy a sunset platter with a view of the ranges, a campfire under the stars, walk of the claypans, cycle to Simpsons Gap, swim in the homestead pool, enjoy birdwatching  or opt for nearby Pyndan Camel Tracks tour.
Rydges Palmerston
This brand new 4 star hotel in Palmerston provides easy access to Darwin's favourite destinations and lies just 20 minutes from Darwin's CBD. Rydges Palmerston features 200 spacious guest rooms (fully self-contained 2 bedroom suites and 1 bedroom apartments) and an open-air contemporary restaurant Fork and Dagger Bar and Grill, where climate-friendly design lets the great outdoors in so guests can relax with a refreshing drink and bite to eat. The Cellar Room is an exclusive private dining room available for those extra special occasions.

Culture College

Earlier this year, the Hooker Family Foundation launched an Australia-first initiative in Arnhem Land called Culture College. Culture College is a social enterprise established to inspire and educate secondary school students and empower the next generation of Australia's leaders. The Culture College Base Camp is located in the town centre of Nhulunbuy in East Arnhem Land, and offers students the opportunity to connect with the rich Aboriginal culture, the pioneering heritage and captivating landsapes of the region. The program provides students with privileged access to, and interaction with, the YolÅ‹u people and their lands.
