Defence of Darwin Experience


Defence of Darwin Experience

The Defence of Darwin Experience is a powerful, immersive, interactive experience, located at iconic East Point, Darwin.

It tells the story of an extraordinary, but little known chapter in Australian history, the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese on the 19 February 1942.

Learn about life in the Northern Territory during World War II, of the contribution made in northern Australia to the war effort, and experience first-hand accounts of the bombing; a traumatic event that changed Darwin forever.

You can also record your family story or response to the exhibition using the StoryShare booth, a dedicated digital story-telling space.

Opened in 2012, as part of the 70th commemoration of the bombing of Darwin, the Defence of Darwin Experience has quickly grown to be one of the most powerful attractions in the Top End.

The Defence of Darwin Experience is operated by the Royal Australian Artillery Association on behalf of MAGNT.
