While in Darwin, we took a bus tour to learn more about the city's experiences in World War II, ate at plenty of local eateries, and wandered around on foot.
Tropical vegetation at Government House
Spotted at Java Spice Cafe (where the coffee and cakes were yummy)
We ate Sri Lankan curries on Mindil Beach and watched the sunset
The trip on the Ghan was good fun and included tours at Katherine and Alice Springs.

We also enjoyed the food on the Ghan! This included ...
Wild peach and vanilla parfait
Tasmanian corn bread with smoked salmon
... and many more delicious offerings. Well worth a visit ... especially during a chilly Canberra winter.
