A Julia Roberts trip through the glitter strip...

Multiculturalism is majorly prevalent in all aspects of Darwin. Whether you are looking for a specific meal, activity or outlet, Darwin and Australia as a whole have welcomed amazing international influences with open arms. The beauty of this is we collectively get to experience things like a taste of Rome at dinner time and a hint of Jakarta at lunch. While also educating ourselves on and reaping the benefits of international norms like Mumbai practises that locals incorporate throughout their everyday life to to de-stress and replenish the mind. Now I know you've all seen the film, or at least heard about it numerous times over brunch, so take some time and feel especially lucky that you are able to have your own 'Eat Pray Love' experience in your homeland.
