Staff was friendly and approachable. Room view was nice, and I loved that the bar is in the vicinity! Very accessible to a lot of eating places and closeby to several shopping/sightseeing venues. Also close to the Darwin Interchange with a few main services that will bring you to other sightseeing/shopping spots. Room was overall clean as well. Surrounding areas seemsled pretty safe as well. Overall i had a good stay at The Cavenagh!

It was very central, enjoyed the live entertainment and the food was excellent especially the beef pie.


Darwin is the capital of Australia's Northern Territory and a former frontier outpost. It's also a gateway to massive Kakadu National Park. Its popular waterfront area has several beaches and green areas like Bicentennial Park. Also near the water is the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, displaying Southeast Asian and Pacific art, plus a pearling lugger and other seafaring vessels. Elsewhere along the ocean, there's a wave lagoon and Stokes Hill Wharf, with alfresco restaurants and vendors offering harbour cruises. Cage swimming with crocodiles at Crocosaurus Cove and barramundi fishing in the nearby wetlands are popular pastimes. At the city's heart is the Smith Street pedestrian mall, notable for shops selling Aboriginal art and crafts, South Sea pearls, opals and diamonds. Military history can be seen at the World War II Oil Storage Tunnels, housing historic photographs; the Darwin Military Museum, exhibiting weaponry and vehicles; and the Aviation Heritage Centre, with bombers and wreckage.
