Tours - Guided, Darwin: 13 reviews and 36 photos
Well we knew it 'was no ordinary show' when Gary and his vehicle arrived to take us on the tour. We were right. We saw and learnt so much in just 4 hours. How good is that?
Did you know 115 tonnes of bombs were dropped on Darwin in 64 air raids? More than were dropped on Pearl Harbour!
Unfortunately for the US navy the 'Peary' happened to be in the harbour at the time of the first attack and was destroyed.
The 'Manunda' Hospital ship was damaged in the attacks even though we were told the Japanese airforce ace leading the attack had not meant for that to happen.
We were taken to many sites of historical significance...Gary knows them all and more...he is to write a book...we need to read it.
Address: Gary will call for you.
