Darwin’s definitive Bombing of Darwin experience, with story telling and story living combining to give you unique insight into Australia's most significant WW2 event.  This double includes a visit to Darwin's premier virtual reality experience located within the Royal Flying Doctor Tourist Facility, with a one hour Bombing of Darwin harbour cruise.
From story telling to story living, this double combines Darwin’s only Bombing of Darwin cruise with a visit to Darwin’s premier virtual reality experience.  The Bombing of Darwin will come alive on this combined adventure.  Your Bombing of Darwin cruise is a journey on the water that starts at Stokes Hill Wharf and takes in the historic wharf areas, the Pearling Luggers, the oil tanks, the wreck sites of the SS Neptuna and USS Peary, the old flying boat base at Doctors Gully, HMAS Coonawarra and the Emery Point gun emplacement. Your Bombing of Darwin virtual reality experience is located within the RFDS Tourist Facility, and is a state of the art presentation which includes life size holograms, interactive story telling mini ghosts, virtual reality of the bombing of Darwin Harbour, replicas of a Japanese Zero aircraft and Camilla the Flying Boat, and a window of 1942 and an aerial view of the bombing raids. Your Bombing of Darwin Double is located on Stokes Hill Wharf.  You can choose to cruise first at 11am, returning back to Stokes Hill at 12.15 where you can enjoy lunch in the alfresco food halls and your leisurely experience in the RFDS Tourist Facility.  Alternatively visit The RFDS Tourist Facility any time from 0930 and whet your appetite for your journey on Darwin Harbour at 11am.  For those travelling on the Big Bus, why not do the circle!  Hop off at Stop 10 Stokes Hill Wharf, enjoy the RFDS Tourist Facility and then your Harbour Cruise, and then hop back on to the Big Bus at Stop 4 Cullen Bay.
