Wednesday 18th May 2011, Darwin.

I suppose I was a little naïve to think that Darwin would be like any other Capital city in Australia, when, from what we saw in our initial drive round today, it is far from it. From the highway into the city it looks like the whole area has been planned, but the suburbs just haven’t been built yet, all you can see is trees. We had a couple of priorities today with a little business to be done, so after that was done we didn’t have a great deal of time to do much looking around but we did get a little bit of an idea. We shall be returning to the city on several occasions, our first impressions were good as it is a bit of a spread out city, and actually gives the feel of being just another large city, which I suppose that is exactly what it is.
