Hidden in the north of Australia is a network of World War II highlighting a military past. Many WWII relics remain today, ‘down-the-track’ and on this full-day tour, you’ll be transported inland to visit a few of these sites.
The highlight of your day is a guided tour of the No. 4 Repair and Salvage Unit (4RSU) which sits on private land adjacent to Pell Airstrip. Refreshments will be served, 1940s style as you browse some of the interesting artifacts that have been discovered on the farm.
Time for reflection at Adelaide River War Cemetery before enjoying a hearty lunch at Adelaide River Inn.
Further exploration of the Coomalie district is not complete without a visit to the Batchelor Museum housing displays that honour the men who were stationed at the Civil Aerodrome which became an important base for Allied Air operations during the war.
The final stop before returning to Darwin is Strauss Airstrip where the airplane revetments are clearly visible 78 years on.
