Guy & Kat
We are a small property with the shaded lagoon pool in the middle of all the apartments, makes it easy for families to relax in their apartment, balcony/veranda and watch the kids enjoy the pool. Separate entrance to each apartment. City Gardens was the first purpose built holiday apartments in Darwin when first constructed back in the early eighties. It has kept up with changes and improvements over the years. Our car park can cater for your 4X4, Campervan or trailer so hit the road and come and see us in the NT.
We are a family operated Boutique group of apartments set within tropical gardens like a small oasis in Darwin City. We hope our guests that stay with us can truly get a feel of the Darwin lifestyle and what the tropics are all about. No high rise building here. Just a friendly place to stay for a night or a few weeks. We are always flexible with requests and happy to help in any way we can.
The area is a quiet end of the street on the outskirts of the CBD but still within an easy walk to shops, nightlife, Mindil Markets, The Botanical Gardens and the Mall.
