Darwin to Adelaide by The Ghan September 2019 - Day 6
After our flight from Sydney to Darwin we picked up the rental car and drove into town, found the hotel and settled in. That gave us time to explore the town before heading east to explore Kakadu. We walked around the town, took the tourist bus around the town to see the sights and drove out to the Darwin Military Museum.
Darwin has a chequered history, having been flattened and rebuilt three times - twice by cyclones and once by Japanese bombers. It still has an air of impermanence, as if expecting to destroyed again, which is probably true. The harbour is its major asset, with new developments including wharves, retail and dining as well as a park and swimming pool (nobody swims in the ocean - too many crocodiles).
