Adelaide River/Australia

Introducing Adelaide River

Blink and you'll miss this tiny highway town, 111km south of Darwin, but once an important point on the Overland Telegraph Line and supply depot during WWII. The Adelaide River War Cemetery is an important legacy: a sea of little brass plaques commemorating those killed in the 1942−43 air raids on northern Australia.
