About Us

Staying with Steeles - at Darwin City Bed & Breakfast, has unique advantages with quiet enjoyment of the privacy, as well as extra personal attention.  A special highlight of being a guest at the Steeles is meeting the hosts, Janette and Roger Steele - true Territorians.


Janette Steele has considerable experience in travel and is a former Director of Steele Tourism, a company that marketed Northern Territory tourism through Europe and the USA.

As well as Janette's extensive experience travelling through Europe, the United States and the Middle East, she has travelled to the Top End's best spots. This has given her the knowledge needed to recommend the best trips and tours for you.


Roger came to the Territory when Darwin was a bombed out town after the second world war. He has experienced the rebirth of the north.

At 13 years of age, Roger was sent outback to the vast cattle stations in the Victoria River country of the west.  He worked his way up from ringer, drover, camp cook, head stockman, to station manager. These were the days when Aboriginal stockmen rode the outback pastoral landscape with authority and pride.

Two career changes later, and just prior to the destruction of Darwin by Cyclone Tracy, Roger was a Northern Territory member of Parliament. He was appointed the first Minister for Tourism, Parliamentary Speaker and, later, he founded the Gregory National Park, 12,882 square kilometres of outback Australian bush. Roger has certainly been a part of the story of the Northern Territory for more than five decades.

Welcome to the Territory - one of the world's best kept secrets, in the most politically stable destination in the world.

"Friendly B&B very convenient for the City." Ideal location, very easy to walk into Darwin without being in the centre itself. Jeanette is a lovely host, friendly and helpful. Very accommodating.She took us to the Military Museum as it was out of town and we didn’t have a car. Room has a small kitchenette which was very useful. We didn’t use the pool because it rained nearly all the time but it looked lovely. The room has both fans and A/C. It is a good size with TV and en suite shower room. We were very grateful to Jeanette for allowing us to stay on until the evening on the day of our departure. We would visit again , just not in the Monsoon season! I would recommend hiring a car so that you can visit out of town places such as the Military Museum, Flying Doctor Museum, Litchfield National Park. 5/5 by ,

I was in a tight spot - having just been asked to leave my accommodation and Jeanette was very welcoming. It was a safe place to rest up and recharge and I could come and go as I pleased. he owner was extremely helpful and amenable. I highly recommend this place - would particularly suit independent travellers needing a place to stay. Excellent!5/5 by ,
Hospitality was exemplary from our host Janette, and the location and proximity to Darwin central was excellent, far away enough to be quiet, close enough that a 10-15 minute walk took you into town.Most enjoyable and recommendedLiam & Rosemary Early, Bunbury, W.Australia5/5 by , WESTERN AUSTRALIA
