Darwin, NT

Darwin in the Northern Territory (NT) down by the sea in the tropics of Australia.

The first photo is of the War Memorial.  2nd is of the Wharf in the distance with the flower Bougainvillea in the foreground. 3rd is of Government House and the 4th of the garden outside the fence. Government House in Darwin was built to let the sea breeze flow through with a lot of shutters seen on the ground floor.





The trees above around a Government building, then canoes and a lot of yachts, on our last visit to this area in Darwin not so many plus the eating houses were no more, just one or two shops were open, totally different .


 The photo is of one of the beach areas looking towards Beagle Gulf/Timor Sea.

  5. Hopefully blogger has relented. My first comment disappeared into the ether.
    Even without the caption I would have known your first photo was a War Memorial.
    Thank you for showing me parts of a city I have never seen. Some day. Perhaps.

  7. I understand that Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory. Hence the governments buildings.
    The deep color of the sea is just fascinating!

  9. It is looking so lush. I can't remember the name but it is something Wharf I think. When we were there it was so lively and a great place to be but I've heard it is nearly deserted now.

  16. Hello Margaret,
    I always watch your pictures from distant (for me) Australia with great curiosity and enthusiasm. I know it is a huge country and extremely interesting. I often miss such spaces, the sea, wide panoramas.
    Beautiful photos that give joy. Regards and thank you :)
