Darwin City and War Defence Journey

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Join Grand Touring on a War Discovery experience as we visit several fascinating locations across Darwin.
Our first discovery will be the Royal Flying Doctors Service where we will learn about Rev John Flynn and his dedication to saving those in need.
We depart Stokes Hill Wharf for a tour via the Esplanade, stopping for a photo at Lyon’s Cottage, the only remaining example of colonial bungalow style architecture in Darwin. We follow this with an enjoyable picturesque view overlooking the Timor Sea en-route to Fanny Bay.
Visit Darwin’s oldest Military History Museum and be captivated by the audio-visual journey that is the Defence of Darwin Experience. Hear first-hand accounts of men and women who survived the horror of that morning of 19th February 1942.
We finish our day with a visit to the Darwin Aviation Museum. The Darwin Aviation Museum is home to 19 civil and military aircraft for visitors to see and explore as well as aircraft wrecks, engines, exhibits and short documentaries. Learn about the bombing of Darwin, Australia’s aviation history as well as seeing the legendary B52 – Darwin’s Pride and the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
