Take Your Motorhome through Darwin’s History

Your campervan hire in Darwin will take you on a great adventure, and you’ll be able to learn about and see evidence of Darwin’s colourful culture and history.

From the first Inhabitants of the greater Darwin area, The Aboriginal people of the Larrakia language group, Darwin has grown from a pioneer outpost and small port into one of Australia’s most modern and multicultural cities. The gold rush in 1875 helped Darwin’s population to grow and later on, during the late 1970’s, the Darwin Reconstruction Commission rebuilt the city with newer materials and techniques. On Australia Day in 1959, Darwin was granted city status.

The first British person to have seen Darwin is thought to have been Lieutenant John Lort Stokes of HMS Beagle on 9 September 1839. The ship’s captain, named the port after Charles Darwin, who had sailed with them both on the earlier second expedition of the Beagle.
