    Really good exhibition. Had interviews and video footage from 1974. Brought back memories from when it happened

    Revisited after 20 years and its still heaps of fun. No social distancing or masks which was a bit weird after the past few years but sounds and food were both fantastic. All the usual trinkets that are perfect for those back home.

    Grab a smoothie and sit on the sand to watch the sun set. Worth it!

    Did the VIP tour, very informative, the guide was very knowledgeable and was very helpful. Handled a baby crocodile and a snake. As an adult I had fun, take some kids with and it would be great.

    Went here after visiting Florence Falls and Wangi Falls with the intention of swimming there. Sadly it was closed to visitors on that day, even though the web site said it was open

    This is an amazingly well developed and maintained park. I visited the desert park after my walk on the Larapinta Trail to learn more about flora and fauna and was blown away by just how amazing this place is. Super friendly staff. A gem in Alice Springs.!

    This experience was both fascinating but also terrifying for what our men and women went through. A definite must see to appreciate where we live.

    Did the base walk one day, and shorter walks on the others. Absolutely beautiful. Go very early to enjoy less crowds and less flies!!! BRING A FLY MASK!!!! Yes even in winter. The gorge is extremely peaceful, and the whole walk? Just magic. Many many many many birds. THOUSANDS of zebra finches. Be aware some areas are sacred and they ask you to not photo or video in those spots. There are plenty of breathtaking views apart from those spots so please respect the requests. One big down side: beware the groups of Aboriginal kids. They will pick your pockets. They swarm around you, patting your pockets, and will try to distract you while their friends steal your phone etc. They will then verbally abuse you when you catch them. I witnessed one being literally kicked in the backside after attempting to rob a man, someone will not hold back and they will end up getting hurt. In the meantime don't get suckered in and don't be afraid to raise your voice and shove them away, don't be fooled by the really little ones, they know exactly what they're doing.

    Well worth the visit. The bombing of Darwin History & Display very well presented. The military display is first class. Beautiful drive out there. Scenic Coastal reserve.
    A history lesson.

    Visited Chris (known as Brolga) and volunteer Miriam yesterday afternoon/last night at The Kangaroo Sanctuary for a sunset tour. A bus, included in the tour price, picked us up at the designated time and then more guests along the way. There were about 15 people on the tour. Guests are dropped back to their accomodation afterwards. Brolga and Miriam greeted us upon arrival and Brolga gave a very informative talk after informally talking to his guests. Two joeys, Cam and Baby, are able to be held by older children and guests along the way. Brolga walked us around the sanctuary, telling us details about everything. There are *many* kangaroos to see, some are bottle fed by guests and some get some food from a bucket, if they approach the group. Brolga is enthusiastic, very patient and answered all questions. I was very happy to see Abi, one of the three original rescue kangaroos (who is now quite old) and Teddy, who was a rescued Euro joey. You also walk past Roger’s memorial and grave site. Brolga made the point of saying most joeys are released back into the wild once they reach a certain age and are healthy and the sanctuary is for the ones who are can’t be released back for various reasons. The sanctuary is out of town and is exactly that; a working rehabilitation centre for kangaroos. There is even a 24 hour rescue centre on site. Do not expect the usual touristy things such as a café, restrooms, souvenirs, etc. That is not what Brolga and his team is about. He is purely educating and creating awareness for the public through these tours. He is definitely passionate about being a “joey Mum” to his rescues. I was more than happy to pay the entry fee (which I’ve heard and read other people complaining about) as the care and rehab of the joeys and the kangaroos at the sanctuary is ongoing. I would recommend going on a tour with Brolga, especially if you don’t know much about kangaroos. I would definitely apply to be a sanctuary volunteer if I lived in Alice Springs! Brolga is great!

    We sat on the rock at sunset looking over the endless wetland at the beginning of the dry season. Stunning and profound experience.

    A great opportunity to experience Darwin and its people. Lots of pop up shops and things to see. Grab a smoothie or a laksa and soak it all up

    When you consider that Darwin's beaches are off limits for swimming or surfing due to salt water crocodiles, it was a good idea to build this facility for the public. The lifeguard told us the wave machine is switched on for 10 mins, then off for 20 mins, so the waves happen each half hour.
    The annual adult pass to use this lagoon was $50 at time of our visit, which seems really inexpensive, considering there is no time limit to how long you decide to stay each visit.
    Plenty of restaurants, ice cream parlours surrounding the complex, and lots of shade to sit.

    Went on the 4 hour 3 gorge tour and had an extremely great time.
    Our guides Jamie and Casey were fantastic and Jamie’s knowledge and humour made for one
    of the most enjoyable and interesting tours to be on.
    Thank a you both for making this one of the most memorable days.

    Beautiful art but unfortunately out of my price range. Would have liked to see some cheaper paintings...not sure how much the locals in the town square sold theirs for. Knowledgeable friendly staff too. Not alot there though.
