The art deco architecture is severe and impressive, the dioramas and displays moving and informative. Worth a long and reflective visit. My only regret is the silence on the wars the long established inhabitants fought against the English invaders, and the massacres that occurred for decades therafter. The reason given at the Memeorial is that only foreign wars are commemorated . But Darwin, ie the Japanese bombing of that town, is not ignored; foreign aggression on this continent is recognised. Hence any foreign aggression needs to be acknowledge, as no reconciliation with the invaded is worth anything without due respect to these people having been paid.
