Very good
Darwin will have big trouble when gas project ends there will be 100s of units for rent and this will bring the prices back to where they should be

the bombing of Darwin exhibition was exceptional, as was the Flying Doctor hologram etc. The Fannie Bay area and Parap village were particularly good. Smith Street mall was interesting as was the walk around Darwin's CBD.
