Darwin is a lovely place to vacation in Australia. This town is one of Australia’s less flashy destinations, but it is still a wonderful place to go! Darwin’s main draws are the beaches and Charles Darwin National Park, where visitors can enjoy the beauty of the natural world. It doesn’t have all the hype of Sydney or Melbourne, but it has something that you might say is even better—affordability. In fact, Darwin is so affordable that all of its Airbnb rentals are under five hundred dollars! Go upper-class, for once, without paying the usual top dollar. Don’t believe me? Check out these very affordable Airbnb rentals, which also happen to be the area’s most expensive.
