10 Minutes from Darwin International Airport. Elevated home in Malak with a huge balcony overlooking the garden. Bus service within 1 minute walking can take about 45 minutes to reach the city.

The space
Please note Mara (my mother) will be your host. I live in a close by location. Darwin local for 25+ years she has a wealth of knowledge of the area and a passion for sharing it. The huge balcony is a beautiful spot for relaxing with a glass of wine or beer and talking into the night.

There is a blackheaded python kept in a cage under the house. You probably won't even see him but he can be held if you're 'curious' ;)

Location

Malak, Northern Territory, Australia

The neighborhood is mostly quiet, you get the odd car revving up the street but nothing extreme. It is the suburbs so far from the city. Car recommended

Crocodylus park is within walking distance. So is Leanyer Water Park a free park for swimming and waterslides (mostly for kids but still fun for adults ;) )

    During your stay
    I (Amanda) do not live at the residence. I do occasionally stop by but you might not see me. Mara(my mother) will be your host.

    She can leave you alone or talk your ear off, it depends on you and what interactions you are comfortable with. During the week we work full time and have many night time commitments. Mara is social and friendly and will happily take you along to our own social events if available. In the dry season we head out to Kakadu & Litchfield most weekends if you are there at the right time we will invite you.
