Introduction of Darwin

Darwin is the capital city of the northern Territory, at the top of the north-east entrance to Porto Darwin in the Timor Sea, known as Australia's northern gateway, named after Charles Robert Darwin, a famous British naturalist and initiator of evolution, visited in 1839.

Darwin, originally an indigenous people's place of residence, developed rapidly after the discovery of gold mines in the 1970s and was severely damaged by the hurricane in 1974 and was rebuilt as a beautiful and highly developed city with modern streets and buildings.

Darwin is Australia's most concentrated indigenous city, and a large proportion of its inhabitants are immigrants from South-East and East Asia and East Asia, so Darwin is also known as the "multicultural capital of Australia ", which, because of its proximity to Asia, is an important export port, mainly for live livestock (cattle, sheep) and minerals.
