Since March 2020 life as we know it has changed forever due to the infectious, deadly coronavirus COVID-19

Darwin is currently fighting to prevent the spread of this disease with almost every aspect of normal life affected.

As governments everywhere restrict everything from international travel to any local activities which allow the virus to spread,  only essential and necessary activities are permitted.

Darwin Cyclone Memories

by Gary Gibson

I can remember the rain and very strong winds,in excess of 320kms,which produced a high pitched screaming sound.When the flashes of lightning ignited the sky i could see,through the gaps between the ceiling and walls,cars and other objects flying through the air.

I was 10 years old in 1974,and I have very fond memories of my life in the Northern Territory,from 1966/7 until 1979.
