Darwin's café scene has become one of the great attractions in this northern Australian outpost, and we track down some of the best breakfast places in the city.

Darwin is a city with influences that are as much Asian as they are western. It's no longer a sleepy outpost on Australia’s northern frontier and is now a recognised holiday destination with a youthful and ethnically diverse population blessed with a strong economy.

The devastation of war and cyclones has only strengthened the character of Darwin and it is establishing itself as an exciting destination in its own right and more than simply a gateway to world class national parks such as Kakadu and Litchfield.

The climate is a major influence on the development and temperament of Darwin. Sharing the weather patterns of  ‘Monsoon Asia’, Darwin’s climate tends to fluctuate between balmy and sultry depending on the season, but it encourages an outdoor lifestyle that is the envy of the rest of Australia.
