Australia, Darwin, Northern Territory, 03 – 19 July 2021

Darwin – population 147,000, capital of the Northern Territory and the northermost city in Australia. It does not rain here during the dry season from May to September with a day night temperature range of 20 to 30 degrees celsius. A perfect place to wait out the school holidays as many of the city people are in the countryside filling up all the accommodation.

Darwin Military Musuem – Darwin was bombed several times by the Japanese during the 2nd WW and was the base for Allied Forces fighting in the Pacific. There are currently around 5,000 military personnel based in this area.

Fannie Bay Gaol – a very relaxed prison and where the last hanging took place in Australia in 1952.

Aviation Museum – interesting place with the only B52 bomber in the Southern Hemisphere.

Jingili Water Gardens and the Botanic Gardens
