    You really can't start your journey out from Darwin without going here. The girls Lisa, Rebecca and Michelle (also Darren not pictured) are really just so pleasant.
    They also have maps free information sheets on the falls, treks, walks, aboriginal art and parks.
    If you want a fishing trip, standby accommodation or a day tour or anything they are a great place to start when your in Darwin.
    This would have to be one of the best Visitor Information Centre's in Australia.

    These ladies are our associations ambassadors for tourism information and their service, friendliness and professionalism is all you hope could hope for and expect.

    Even during our grand opening the girls were helping folks walking in looking for information on Darwin - at Tourism Top End

    TOURISM TOP END VISITOR INFORMATION CENTRE FINDS A NEW HOME!

    There are exciting times ahead as Tourism Top End turns a page in history this week as the Association moves to their new premises on the corner of Bennett and Smith Street (opposite the Smith Street Mall).

    The new centre is located in the heritage-listed Reserve Bank Building that was constructed in 1966/67 and provides a particularly fine example of the late twentieth century stripped classical architectural style. The building is a reminder of the role that the Reserve Bank of Australia played in the development of a centralized banking and monetary control system in Australia.

    Tourism Top End identified this site as a premier and strategic location for the Visitor Centre that will create an activity node that is complementary to the Darwin Waterfront and the Convention Centre. The building provides a great welcome to Darwin for our visitors who will gain a pictorial snapshot of the Top End Region on entry to the new centre from the dramatic and evocative images displayed. The Centre will provide extensive and vital information for visitors that will ensure that their visit to the Top End is fulfilled. It will also offer extensive information that covers the whole of the NT for the self-drive market.

    The relocation is a result of a remarkably strong partnership between Tourism Top End and the NT Government. This has made a dream a reality and provided our visitors to Darwin exactly what they deserve, a first class Visitor Information Centre. Tourism Top End is a non-profit member based Association with 544 members drawn from businesses, individuals and organisations committed to the growth of tourism in the Top End. The tempory Minister for Tourism will be officially opening the building on Tuesday 27 November at 12pm.
