Darwin

 

Northern Territory, Australia

 

Darwin is the tropical capital city of Australia's Northern Territory. It has a relaxed outdoor lifestyle and enjoys warm weather all year round. Perched on a peninsula with sea on three sides, Darwin is an excellent base to explore the natural attractions of World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park, Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks, the Tiwi Islands and Arnhem Land. The city was founded as Australia's most northerly harbour port in 1869, and its population rapidly expanded after the discovery of gold at nearby Pine Creek in 1871.

 

World War II put the city on the map as a major allied military base for troops in the Pacific.

Today travellers can see evidence of Darwin's World War II history at a variety of preserved sites including ammunition

bunkers, airstrips and oil tunnels in and around the city. Darwin again made world news when the city was rebuilt in

the wake of Cyclone Tracy in 1974 - an event well documented at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.

 Cyclone Tracey struck Darwin in the Northern Territory on Christmas Eve 1974. It remains Australia's most destructive with winds of around

250 kilometres per hour. Seventy-one people were killed, and many thousands injured. Of a population of 43,000, 25,000 were left homeless.

""And behold, I* am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his

work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last." Blessed

are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter

through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and

murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to

testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright

and Morning Star.” And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!”

And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely."

( * Jesus )   Revelation of Jesus Christ  ch.22  vs.12-17.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
