Thursday. 19 February, 1942.
World War II reaches mainland Australia and the northern city of Darwin is bombed.
Move forward to today and 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.
Your tour ends at Bicentennial Park where you may peruse at your leisure the many memorials to Squadrons, Corps, and Units that were stationed in Darwin during WWII.
For the keen Military History visitor, this tour connects with another WWII tour conducted by our tourism colleagues at The Darwin History and Wartime Experience.
