Darwin: Old Town Hall ruins

IMG_0830

The old Town Hall amazingly survived the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese only to be wiped out by Cyclone Tracey in 1974.  The ruins were built during the Pine Creek Gold Rush in 1883.  These days the decay of the ruins has been slowed by modern-day conservation techniques.  They are used as an outdoor theatre.
