The first touristy thing we did in Darwin was the Sunset Dinner Cruise on the Charles Darwin with Darwin Harbour Cruises.
Not knowing our way around we almost got on the wrong boat. There are two companies running similar cruises and we nearly got on the first boat we saw. While queuing to board I had a funny feeling we were in the wrong place. I asked the man that was helping people board and he confirmed my doubt. So we had to rush back to move the car further down Stokes Hill wharf.
We departed soon after boarding but had to wait a while for dinner. The sun hadn’t started setting yet so we had a few drinks and chatted. I have to say the food was quite average in my opinion but I’m not one for mass-produced buffet food. However I wasn’t there for the food. I was there for the sunset. And I wasn’t let down. At all! It was the most stunning sunset I have ever seen. As soon as it started to set I was out the door on the balcony and took a few hundred photos in about 20 minutes. Below are four that I picked out to share with you.
