The Bombing of Darwin - Darwin

The Bombing of Darwin

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.
