The Claypot Water Bearer
On April 23rd 1982 this statue of the Claypot Water Bearer was presented to the City of Darwin by the people from the Greek island of Kalymnos.
It commemorates the founding of their "Sister City" relationship and for forging mutual cultural and commercial interests.
The Bombing of Darwin
On Mitchell Street you will come across this plaque commemorating the first ever air raid on the Australian mainland on 19th of February 1942. Darwin felt the full brunt of two devastating air raids.
The same force that destroyed Pearl Harbour 10 weeks earlier dropped twice as many bombs on an unprepared Darwin. Nearly 300 people were killed and hundreds more were wounded.
