Relax with a coffee on the long narrow veranda of Cornucopia Museum Café overlooking the calm blue waters of Darwin Harbour. Fans whir overhead, palm fronds sway in the breeze and there’s a fun bubble of voices in the background. Enjoy an assortment of salads or burgers. Breakfast all day is an option.
Cornucopia is part of the Museum and Art Gallery complex. Why not combine your stay with a stroll around the latest exhibition or visit Cyclone Tracy and get a sense what this devastating storm would have been like. If visiting museums is not up your street, take a walk along the beachside walk that runs past the gallery. The path is named after Ian Fairweather, an eccentric adventurer and artist, who “sailed” 400 miles in a man made raft made from old fuel tanks and driftwood with a silk parachute for a sail. This is a particularly beautiful walk late afternoon as the sun starts to set over the ocean.
