Anybody can pop by this site which is located in the small downtown area. Darwin is not a big place! Use the free wifi to keep in touch with friends at home and relax in a comfy chair.

There are a number of items on exhibition in the entrance to the Library and many more once you get inside. There are stories and artworks on the bombing of Darwin and a giant embroidered mural which is spectacular.

Inside the Parliament House and pleasant to have a look at and escape the humidity. There was an exhibition on about the plight of the local indigenous people and how they were housed and treated as Darwin grew. Very interesting and eye-opening. The patchwork quilt...More
