Being Australian and having the war on our doorstep in the Top End one can only wonder what happened in such a short time of destruction and death to the people of Darwin. The history of the bombing of Darwin is a must to go and see and I am sure the absorbtion of what happened will have you with a lump in your throat and goose bumps all over. Emotion will take you over guaranteed!!!!!!. There are a lot of places to go and the staff at most places are really great to talk to . As a hint go see the FLYING DOCTORS history on Stokes Hill Wharf

Garry was an excellent tour guide. Reminded me of Steve Irwin a bit. He has excellent knowledge on the area and particularly on this Australian on ground war. So many stories personalised with peoples names, their experiences etc. I am NOT a war fan but went along with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed the 4 or 5 hours. You choose between the artilery or aviation museum, we chose aviation. The B52 bomber was amazing to see. All in all highly recommend this tour. His bus was comfortable, small groups only which suited us. A few little stops here and there pointing out some places of interest, including some original buildings that have survived both the bombing and cyclone Tracy.
