Darwin Photos from 1960's
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.

These Darwin Photos show life in Darwin during the 1960's and early 70's before the destructive forces of cyclone Tracy destroyed much of the city.
Thanks to Snow and Marilyn for providing a look at Darwin's history with these pictures.
If you were in Darwin or the NT before Cyclone Tracy changed things forever and have some photos or an experience to share we would love to include it. Simply click here for the Darwin's Living History section and start typing....it is really that easy.
