Went ashore briefly. Seemed like a nice place but we were defeated by the heat and humidity. Intended to have lunch and do some shopping, but in the end beat a hasty retreat back to the ship!!

Having lived in Darwin for many years we simply took the opportunity to revisit places we knew well. IOt was far more enjoyable - and much cheaper - than booking a ship based tour.,

Darwin. We caught a Taxi to the War museum which was very interesting with lots of war relics and a video about the bombing. Though we should of lined up and got hop on hop off tickets as despite the website that says they dont go to the war museum in the mornings ( which was our plan) they make exceptions when cruise ships are in and do all stops all day.) We then went to the Crocosaurous Cove in the city. This is a mini zoo run by a croc farm. It has lots of crocs in small cages so a bit distressing for animal lovers. But then the crocs don't seem too worried they all look well fed and the keepers seem well informed. For $$ you can be submerged in a perspex tube for a closer look. We saw a mad Englishman do this. Mostly the croodiles looked bored, but they ply them with chicken on strings so you get a few nifty photos of crocodiles jumping around. Included in entry you get to wave bits of chicken at the tiny youngsters which my son enjoyed. After this we visited an art gallery, chatted to few local indigenous artists and brought a painting, Not the galery in the mall but upstairs not far from Mac Donald's. We then wandered down through the mall back to the ship. We had intended visiting the War tunnels which are 5 minutes walk from the ship but they are only open until 1pm. Instead we walked to the other side of the dock (about 1.5km from the ship) to the Flying Doctors Museum. We were very glad we made the effort despite the afternoon heat nad humidity. A great (better then war museum) bombing interactive experience and an old plane you can climb around in amnd lots of information regarding the flying docotors history in Australia. 10 year old loved it!

Been there a few times. Always hot & sticky during the wet season. The war museum & the aircraft museum are very good.
