Things to do

Sometimes a walk through the gardens or reading a book by the pool is the order of the day. But if you like to balance your stay with some relaxing AND some adventure then we can personalise your stay with us by booking a tour or experience through our preferred provider network. 

Darwin Resort partners with tour operators who care about our customers as much as we do. Here you can find handpicked tours and experiences we think you will love plus a few of our favourite regular festivals and events you shouldn’t miss.
