Palmerston is the second largest city in the Northern Territory and one of the fastest growing cities in Australia. Just 20 km or so from Darwin, it makes the excitement of urban life easily accessible, while being close to the slower pace of rural areas such as Howard Springs. Students at the local Charles Darwin University campus add to the atmosphere and help to create a pretty good nightlife for a city of 28,000 residents. Palmerston restaurants are a key part of the local scene and you'll find the best of them right here on Quandoo. It's a good idea to book ahead to make sure of a table in this busy little city.
