A tourist in Darwin

A tourist in Darwin

Darwin is a fun place to spend a few days. There’s a relaxed, quiet feel to the centre, and new developments have created a stylish waterfront precinct. We’re here for six days exploring some of the sights, swimming in the free lagoon area, and languishing in our Airbnbs during the heat of the day.

Roger’s sister recommended we went to Aquascene to feed the fish that congregate in Doctors Gully at high tide. We threw bread to catfish, mullets, milk fish and snappers

This is Sweetheart a five metres long saltwater crocodile. He made the mistake of attacking several fishing boats nearby, becoming something of a celebrity before he was killed

We loved the Deckchair Cinema; as the sunset, lovely Japanese food and chats with the locals, followed by a screening of the French drama Bag of Marbles
