The Darwin Aviation Museum promises to be quite an eye-opener. World War II footage of the Japanese Air Force is a special treat for historians. But what makes the aviation museum one of the best in the country are the 19 aircraft on display, from Mirages to Sabre jet fighters to a Royal Australian Wessex helicopter. The highlight though is the B-52 Bomber Stratofortress, a state-of-the-art, long-range bombing aircraft that has been guarding the skies from the late 1950s.
Darwin’s Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory has the largest permanent display of Aboriginal artwork among over 30,000 items. There is also a splendid collection of natural history specimens numbering close to 1.2 million. The museum’s icon is Sweetheart! An odd name to give a 5.1-metre male saltwater crocodile, Sweetheart gained notoriety in 1970s after attacking boats at fishing spots. He was eventually caught and while the crocodile was being transported, he drowned. He has been taxidermically preserved ever since.
The George Brown Botanic Gardens has survived numerous cyclones and even a World War, but still stands tall and resilient with a variety of flora and fauna. There are a range of planting environments which enable a variety of plant life to thrive here. This is one of the few botanic gardens in the world which has marine and estuarine plants naturally in its grounds. George Brown was the curator of the Botanic Gardens and is responsible for bringing back the gardens to life after each tragedy and also the wide variety of plant life on display here.
