Palmerston is a dynamic city offering all-modern facilities and a great base from which to explore the Darwin region. Palmerston is located just 22 kilometres (or a short 25 minute drive) from the centre of Darwin and has a population of 23500. Palmerston is the site of the Australian Army’s Robertson Barracks, purpose built for the First Brigade as part of the Army Presence in the North Project. There are several large shopping centres at Palmerston and a pleasant 18-hole golf course. The surrounding rural area has many mango farms and the Kakadu Mango Winery is located in town. Using only the world’s best Kensington Pride mangoes, these unusual wines have a delightful tropical ambience. Another popular attraction is Marlow Lagoon, a picturesque lake and park, which also offers an area for off-leash dog walking.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
