Departing from the Darwin Visitor (Tourist) Information Centre you'll commence your tour with a short trip around the Darwin city centre where you'll learn about the buildings, statues and points of interest associated with Darwin's establishment and early development. As you pass Government and Parliament Houses your tour will head down the esplanade alongside Darwin's beautiful harbour and the narrative turns to Darwin's involvement in WW2. You'll pass sites associated with anti-aircraft batteries, Catalina flying boats, Army and Navy barracks and the sombre loss of many Australian and American servicemen and civilians. From there your first stop will be at a house where bullet holes of an attacking Japanese zero fighter are still in evidence. As we head north of the city you'll be treated to stunning views of Mindil beach, Fannie Bay and the harbour entrance before stopping at the 1934 QANTAS hangar to learn about Darwin's involvement in the early air races and the devastation wrought by Japanese airforces over Darwin during the war. Your tour will then head to East Point military precinct. As we pass through the tropical monsoon rainforest in the area, you might spot some of the abundant wildlife - wallabies, eagles, kites, snakes, magpie geese and dingoes that abound here. At East Point you have the opportunity to disembark at the Military Museum/Defence of Darwin Experience (entry fee additional), and be picked up by the subsequent tour an hour and a half later.
