Hema's Darwin and Region Map features Darwin city (1:25,000) and suburbs on one side and maps of Palmerston (1:25,000), Howard Springs to Humpty Doo (1:75:000) and the Darwin region on the reverse.
Originally known as Palmerston (the name was changed to Darwin in 1911), it used to be a dusty, sleepy savannah town. Today it's a bustling, multi-cultural, tropical city albeit with a laid-back attitude.
Founded in 1869 as the landing point for a marine telegraph cable from Java, the city has had more than its fair share of hard knocks. It has been devastated by cyclones three times, almost bombed out of existence, and brought to its knees by economic catastrophe.
Darwin's CBD is sited on a small peninsula that juts into Darwin Harbour. About twice the size of Sydney Harbour, it's the city's main recreational playground. There are some great beaches around its shores, and the mangrove forests attract fishing tours and bird-watchers. There are sailing, reef fishing and water sports at several spots around the harbour. Dive around the remains of several WWII vessels including the destroyer USS Peary and the wrecks of Cyclone Tracy.
Darwin offers many good fishing spots, including Stokes Hill Wharf for queenies, Spanish mackerel, trevally and long-tailed tuna, and Mandorah Jetty on the opposite side of the harbour. The rock walls at Dinah Beach are good for mud crabs, and casting at night on a high tide can yield bream and barramundi. Sunset picnics are extremely popular in Darwin, particularly on the cliff tops at Fanny Bay, East Point, Nightcliff and Casuarina.
There are some great beaches including Mindil Beach and 8km-long Casuarina Beach. One of Darwin's favourite recreation venues, the Casuarina Coastal Reserve stretches along 8km of sandy beach between Rapid Creek and Buffalo Creek. Within its 1500 hectares are colourful cliffs, eucalypt woodlands, mangroves and monsoon forest. You'll find shaded picnic areas at Dripstone Cliffs, Dripstone Park, Lee Point and Buffalo Creek. Dripstone Cliffs is a popular venue for cliff-top picnic dinners with sunset views. From the beach car park, shared dirt paths allow access to the mouth of Sandfly Creek and Lee Point. Much of the track to Lee Point winds through dense bush, with occasional gutters, steep descents and sharp corners waiting for the unwary cyclist. There are a couple of interesting WWII sites along the bike path to Lee Point and more at Buffalo Creek.
Around Darwin, nature enthusiasts should check out Howard Springs, Berry Springs and Territory/Nature & Wildlife Parks for a great place to spend a day outdoors. Shoal Bay is a popular spot for crabbing and barra fishing. Dundee Beach has a bush resort and camping area and a concrete ramp and is very popular with Darwinians.

EU customers - IMPORTANT: You will be required to pay import VAT (tax) at your local rate to your postal delivery service before any goods are delivered. Since 2021 you have not been charged British VAT (at 20%) on any purchases or P&P charges, however, with effect from 1 January 2022, the rules regarding importing from outside the EU changed and import VAT is now payable on any value of goods imported into the EU. This is separate to any tariff which may or may not be chargeable on the goods due to their country of origin. Please also note that we are legally required to declare the correct value of your purchase which is used to calculate the tax and any tariff duty. Failure to pay the import charges will result in the goods being returned to the UK. Our terms and conditions have been updated to reflect this situation.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
