Our accommodation was at the Mantra on the Esplanade, overlooking Darwin Harbour. I was lucky to be able to see the sun rise from my bedroom window and the sun set from the balcony. It was a three bedroom apartment but we booked an apartment with a 1 bedroom apartment and a connecting hotel-style room. However when we checked in we were upgraded to the three bedroom apartment. Parts of the décor were a little dated in some rooms but it was a nice comfortable apartment. During the day the temperature was around 32 degrees Celsius every day so we had to keep the air-conditioner on all the time. Each room had it’s own control and I had to keep mine on during the night. Our apartment faced west and caught the afternoon sun.
The sun setting from our apartment balcony. The colours of a Darwin sunset are simply amazing.
