Attractions near the Mantra on the Esplanade
Hang around the hotel
There’s no need to rush with a location this central, so why not take the time to enjoy the hotel and its amenities before heading out to explore the rest of the city. Mantra’s own Finz Restaurant and Bar showcases the best of the region’s fresh seafood with a distinctly Asian twist, which reflects the city’s heritage. Try the barramundi with ginger and shallots, dressed with Asian greens on a bed of udon noodles, or the local oysters with mirin, soy and cucumber dressing.
To feel truly spoiled, have your beverages and meals served to you by the pool. All you need to do is pick up the conveniently placed poolside phone and call in your order. The attentive staff will bring it straight to your sun lounge.
Explore old and new Darwin
Once you’re ready to venture out, it’s not far from the front door to the main entertainment hub of the city, a few minutes away on Mitchell Street. If you haven’t already eaten, it will be easy to satisfy your appetite with the numerous cafes, restaurants and bars that line the walkway.
You can appease your cultural needs on Smith Street at the Old Town Hall Ruins, which were originally built in 1883. They managed to survive bombings before being devastated by Cyclone Tracy in 1974. On the same street sits another building that has survived war and weather: The Victoria Hotel. It's a great example of old colonial architecture.
