Darwin CBD is surrounded by the sea. The tropical warm waters boast huge tides that rise and fall by 7 meters (21 foot). The mangroves are inundated or left high and dry!
The sea has always been near to me, when I lived in England it was a 30 minute drive away. I love to travel, to be on the move, over the next hill around the next bend. The sea however, has the greatest draw-card, the distant horizon and what may lie beyond? Great explorers were drawn to this, possibly drawn to their demise or rewarded experiences surpassing their wildest imagination.
Oh, did I mention that Darwin is renown for spectacular sunsets.
