Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, admire the natural beauty at George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens, take in the waterfront at Darwin Wharf Precinct, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Cathedral.
