Darwin is a place with a rich history, from its penal colonies to World War II survival stories, there is plenty to learn about this city's fascinating background.
If you want an interactive multimedia experience to teach you about the role Australia played in WW II then head to the Defence of Darwin Experience.
The facility is dedicated to the period between 1932 and 1945, when many people fought, died or were dispossessed in their attempt to defend the Northern Territory.
Residents of property in Darwin can play on the interactive attractions, including the StoryShare exhibition which allows you to tell your story in a digital format. The stories are then available for other visitors to read, becoming part of the Defence of Darwin Experience.
Another feature of the facility is the bombing of Darwin experience, where multi sensory elements will provide you with a real sense of the horror of the events of February 19, 1942.
Located next to the Darwin Military Museum, the Defence of Darwin Experience could provide the kick off point of an historical tour of the city.
There are another nine historical sites around the city, so if you live in real estate in Darwin you could make a day of it.
