Darwin – Day 3: Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory

The Museum is in the suburb of Fannie Bay.  It has some really great displays.  My favourite was the Cyclone Tracey display.  Cyclone Tracey devastated Darwin on Christmas Eve 1974. For days the rest of the world had no idea what was going on.  In those days there wasn’t a lot of thought put into housing that would stand up to cyclonic winds.  The museum itself lost a lot of artifacts and exhibitions.
