is the capital city of the Northern
Territory, Australia. Situated on the Timor Sea,
Darwin has a population of 120,652, making it by far
the largest and most populated city in the sparsely
populated Northern Territory, but the least populous
of all Australia's capital cities. It is the smallest
and most northerly of the Australian capital cities,
and acts as the Top End's regional centre.
Over time Darwin has grown from a pioneer outpost
and small port into one of Australia's most modern
and multicultural cities. Its proximity to Asia makes
it an important Australian gateway to countries such
as Indonesia and East Timor. The Stuart Highway begins
in Darwin, ending at Port Augusta in South Australia.
The city itself is built on a low bluff overlooking
the harbour. Its suburbs spread out over some area,
beginning at Lee Point in the north and stretching
to Berrimah in the east – past Berrimah, the
Stuart Highway goes on to Darwin's satellite city,
Palmerston, and its suburbs.
The region, like the rest of the Top End, has a tropical
climate, with a wet season and a dry season. It receives
heavy rainfall during the Wet, and is well-known for
its spectacular lightning.
The original inhabitants of the greater Darwin area
are the Larrakia people. On 9 September 1839, HMS
Beagle sailed into Darwin harbour during its surveying
of the area. John Clements Wickham named the region
"Port Darwin" in honour of a former shipmate
and famed scientist Charles Darwin.
Having been almost entirely rebuilt twice, once due
to Japanese air raids during World War II and again
after being devastated by Cyclone Tracy in 1974, the
city is one of Australia's most modern capitals. (Credit:

"Sydney based producer of 'Brothers At War' Richard

It sounds like more episodes of 'Underbelly' are being
written at the speed of news. The thin blue line relationship
continues between Aussie bikers and legal top brass
