We are a family of 4 (teenage children) and have a Christmas Day stop over in Darwin. We arrive at 4.45am from Melbourne and have a flight out to Singapore at 6.30pm. I've inquired with a couple of hotels nearest to the airport for the single day accommodation, but the expense at this time of year being Christmas would be stretching our budget. Can anyone give me some suggestions on easy accessible places to fill in time (happy to hire a car if needed) and somewhere casual to go for Christmas Lunch. Really appreciate any help.
