Tropical afternoons in Darwin are characterised by dramatic cloud formations and the anticipation of nature’s light show.

We explore the character of life in Darwin through art as we casually tour the back lanes of the CBD where huge street murals adorn walls of city buildings, with plenty of rest stops to admire the view.

Our tour will take in the CBD light-art illuminations as part of world-renowned artist, Bruce Munro’s Tropical Light exhibition; his first City-wide light exhibition in Australia.
