Parks Week is coming up in the Northern Territory, and what better way to celebrate it than head to the local public gardens in Darwin?
"This year's theme for Parks Week is 'Connect with Nature'," said Bess Price, minister for parks and wildlife in a February 13 statement.
"The Territory is home to so many beautiful and diverse parks and this week is a chance for Territorians to connect with and make the most of our natural wilderness."
Residents of real estate in Darwin are fortunate enough to enjoy a number of parks, gardens and public open spaces, which makes the region a fantastic place for outdoor lovers and families with children.
Parks Week will run from March 3-9 and will be celebrated in many areas throughout the state. Some parks and gardens even have some planned events offered by the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife Commission. Some of these activities will include guided walks, bird watching, school competitions and BBQs.
Locals in Darwin can head down to the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens, which will host an early morning guided bird walk on March 8. There will also be a mountain bike tour on the same date at the Litchfield National Park and presentation on local wildlife at the NT Library on March 5.
