TripAdvisor has named Darwin Australia's top emerging tourist destination for 2020.

The Northern Territory's tropical capital city was rated 24th on the Top 25 Global Emerging Destinations for 2020 - the only Aussie destination to make the list.

According to the leading online travel website, travellers are attracted to Darwin because of its outdoor, tropical lifestyle, waterfront dining, crocodile adventures, rich historical experiences and access to the Tiwi Islands.

The Emerging Destinations Awards highlight destinations which are up and coming global traveller hotspots.

Award winners were determined using an algorithm that measured year-over-year increase in positive Tripadvisor traveller review ratings for accommodations, restaurants and attractions, and increase in booking interest and searches across destinations worldwide.

For the Emerging Destination category, year-over-year Save data from Tripadvisor travellers was also factored into the methodology. Travellers can save travel ideas and plans by tapping the heart icon on places to stay, restaurants, and things to do, letting travellers keep track of their plans, and remember them for later.
