“Darwin was one of the few places on the Australian mainland to be directly attacked by the Japanese during WW2, with 300 bombs being dropped on the city in February 1942. You can learn about the history of Darwin’s experience in the war in various significant sites around the city, as well as the highly informative Defence of Darwin Experience, the adjacent Darwin Military Museum, the Aviation Heritage Centre, and the Cenotaph overlooking Darwin Harbour.”

“A great changing exhibition space. Get a sense of what it was like for the people of Darwin to go through Cyclone Tracy in the sound room. MAGNT is a beautiful spot that has a lovely eating spot- Cornucopia Cafe”

“Fannie Bay Gaol is a historic gaol in Darwin, Australia. The gaol operated as Her Majesty's Gaol and Labour Prison, from 20 September 1883 until 1 September 1979. The gallows remain on public view, and visitors can push the lever that operated the trap. The prison was damaged, along with much of Darwin, by Cyclone Tracy in 1974.”

“Paul's stunning Northern Territory photography adorns our unit's walls. His gallery is a must see and it's 3 mins from the apartment. He has a wide select of smaller prints perfect for traveling or purchase something larger and have it shipped home. Take all the happy snaps you like, but if a place stole your heart, pop in and check out Paul's range. His photo's are so beautiful, you'll think you're there again.”

“The Northern Territory has a fascinating indigenous history, and there’s plenty of ways to learn about it: in particular, galleries such as the Aboriginal Bush Traders, Outstation Gallery and Mbantua Fine Art Gallery are well worth a visit for art lovers, and you can enjoy excellent indigenous cultural tours at the Pudakul Aboriginal Culture tours, just under an hours’ drive from Darwin.”
