Darwin Walking Tour: World War II Reflections
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.

John, the tour guide was very friendly and informative. The tour included some of the local history and landmarks as well as historic war history. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in knowing more about Darwin's past. It's an easy walk and John ensured all stops were under shade. It was a nice touch at ths end when John gave me a couple of ANZAC biscuits. Great experience, thank you.
