Travel back in time and hear the stories of Darwin Harbor's frontline activity. Visit historic sites hit by Japanese air raids during World War II and cruise along the harbor to view shipwrecks and Navy Base HMAS Coonawarra.

Start your guided tour with a hotel pickup and take a scenic drive to Darwin's war memorial and anti-aircraft gun sites. Stop at Charles Darwin National Park, see storage shelters built in 1944, and walk to the platform for views of Darwin Harbor.

Then travel to Stokes Hill Wharf and board your harbor cruise. Learn how Australia was attacked by Japanese during the war and see the underwater resting place of an American warship. Pass by the HMAS Coonawarra Naval Base before disembarking at Cullen Bay.

Your next stop is at East Point Military Precinct—Australia's only wartime battleground. See the storage bunkers and observation towers that remain. Then take time to visit the museum and see a collection of wartime weapons before returning to your Darwin hotel.
