This was our first stop on our first day tour from Darwin.
Adelaide River is just over 100kms from Darwin and was the headquarters for the army and air force in World War 2. The cemetery was built for the 432 men and women killed in action. I loved the tranquillity of the area. It isn’t on a main road or in a busy area. It is set in beautiful gardens. We arrived very early in the morning. Our tour started at around 6.30 so this would have been before 8am I think. There was still a little bit of dew on the lawns and it wasn’t too hot.
I loved the gardens. They are so beautifully maintained.
This tree was outside the cemetery. I love the way it twists and turns and is all gnarled. I’d love to know how old it is.
