    Hi all. Just found this group while doing some research. I live in Darwin in the top end of Australia and love looking at the locations built here during WWII. Hope to be able to share some of the videos I have made and hope you enjoy them.

    Cheers

    I feel for you. But you could always move up here, do your 2 weeks in the sun at Howard Springs and have no issues.

    Good plan...except trying to find housing at the moment is a nightmare. Having said that you could live here...

    I’ve done my time in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. Too many freezing mornings standing at the train station for me. And the bonus at the moment is I have a reason not to visit the family and they can’t easily visit me.

    "The ‘Top End’ of the Northern Territory is a tropical oasis that consists of Darwin (the NT’s capital city), World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, remote Arnhem Land in the north-east corner, and the Katherine region where the tropics meet the outback."
