We booked this tour for our first morning after arrival. Not only was it a brilliant history lesson but it was also a great tour of the city. Certainly worthwhile to stop at the War museum and learn even more about the history of Darwin....More
This was a fascinating tour, Dave (I think was his name) is a fountain of knowledge and it was so interesting to learn about pre and post war Darwin. You get a great tour of the city and have the option to be dropped off...More
