During World War II, Darwin was largely destroyed, and after rebuilding Darwin again was devasted by Cyclone Tracy in 1974. Today, Darwin remains Australia’s gateway to South East Asia, with tourism its largest employing industry due to its tropical lifestyle, unique wildlife and close proximity to many areas of breath-taking natural beauty.
