Darwin 1987 photos

Northern Territory, Australia

Australia facts & history in brief

Darwin is the Capital and largest city of , Australia.
On the Beagle Gulf.
Population around 100.000.
Used to be known as Palmerston or Port Darwin, but was renamed to Darwin in 1911.

The Northern Territory is rich in mineral deposits.

In 1879, Darwin was devastated by a hurricane and again almost completely destroyed by Cyclone Tracy in 1974.

I found Darwin a 'ted' too hot for my liking.

Spent every night at a pub, listening to Talent Quests and enjoying the benefit of Air-conditioning.

In 1957, Darwin was our first stopover in the Southern Hemisphere.

To my surprise the Airport and the Lounge didn't change much at all in the intervening years.

The town, it's surrounds and the people are very friendly and interesting.
