Home Care in Darwin & Surrounds

Northern Territory’s capital city Darwin was founded in 1869 and is a modern business and industrial centre with a highly diverse multicultural population of approximately 148,564 people. Darwin is treasured country of the traditional owners, the Larrakia people, with the history of Darwin and the Tiwi Islands dating back tens of thousands of years. 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.
