Darwin Walking Tour: World War II Reflections

    What to Expect
    Meet your guide under the John McDouall Stuart monument in Raintree Park. They will be wearing a bright orange shirt for easy identification.

    Thursday. 19 February, 1942. World War II reaches mainland Australia and the northern city of Darwin is bombed. Move forward to today and it’s Thursday, when your guide will take you back to that WWII era on a 2-hour walk through the historic quarter of the city. Hear stories of that fateful day as you meander past historic buildings of the time that have been re-built to provide lasting memories of life in the north during the War.

    We walk on pathways, gardens and cross a number of streets. Commentary is usually given in a shady location for everyone's comfort and the stroll through the streets of Darwin is leisurely.

    Remember to bring the following:

    Camera, sunscreen, hat and water. Good enclosed non-slip walking shoes are recommended.

    We found this tour very interesting, whilst we have been to Darwin before we certainly were not aware of the many hidden gems and information imparted by our very knowledgeable guide

    Sure the pools and the markets and the food are all great but Darwin has something else to offer - a totally fascinating history. And in the hands of John, our walking tour guide, Darwin's history comes to life over two extremely enjoyable hours, full of great stories as we stop
