Ice skating at Nightcliff
by Val Hine
I've lived in Darwin since 1964, except for 2 years in Katherine. Some friends and I were chatting the other day, and as Casuarina Shopping Centre has erected an ice rink, it reminded me of the one (I thought) that used to exist in Nightcliff behind what is now the bowling alley.
Everyone shouted me down, but I'm SO SURE we used to be able to ice skate there. Was only for a short time. I can remember someone saying that it cost so much money to run the place, and we just didn't have the population then (mid 1960's - mid 70's). Can anyone remember it - or am I just getting senile?
