    What to Expect
    Meet your guide under the John McDouall Stuart monument in Raintree Park. They will be wearing a bright orange shirt for easy identification.
    Your guide will cheerfully share their passion for the town they call home and will tell of the history of the World War II bombings and Cyclone Tracy. Discover many of the remaining buildings such as the Old Court House and Police Station, Browns Mart and the Old Palmerston Town Hall ruins, all of which have been painstakingly reconstructed. View Government House, Parliament House and the Northern Territory Supreme Court on our journey through the streets of this modern tropical city.
    There’s many hidden treasures to see on foot and plenty of opportunities to capture photographs of the indigenous sculptures, architecture, historic buildings, wildflowers and wildlife.
    Remember to bring the following:
    Camera, sunscreen, hat and drinking water. Good enclosed non-slip walking shoes are recommended. 
    We walk on pathways, gardens and cross a number of streets. Commentary is usually given in a shady location for everyone's comfort.

    If you're interested in history, this is a great introduction to Darwin. Our guide, John, is the subject matter expert-he really brought the topic to life. I only wish I'd taken his tour the first day of our stay in Darwin and that we'd stayed...More

    Our guide Betty was great! She gave us so much history about this city. We were able to cover a lot in the 2 hours. Interesting and worthwhile.

    My only regret is that I didnt take the walk earlier on my visit to Darwin. All the snippets of information made the city so special after that. I didn't realise, for example, that the little shopping cul de sac I had been to used...More
