    Aboriginal Darwin: A guide to exploring important sites of the past and present

    Aboriginal Darwin shows the rich heritage and complex cultures of Aboriginal people, both before and since colonisation. To most visitors and locals, Darwin is a vibrant, tropical city in the Top End, but it is also a living Aboriginal cultural landscape. The book includes contemporary and historical sites that range from the harbour to the beaches, monsoon forests, gardens, parks, camping places, exhibitions, cultural displays and buildings in the CBD, supplemented by information about sites not accessible to visitors.

    Beautifully illustrated, Aboriginal Darwin’s easy-to-use layout allows users to explore at their own pace.

    Ubirr and Nourlangie are two outstanding rock outliers adorned with Aboriginal Paintings, lying on plains beside the East Alligator River and the Arnhem Land Escarpment in Kakadu National Park in northern Australia.

    Dreaming paths of the Rainbow Serpent, the Lightning Man, the Cockatoo Lady, and Warramurrunundji the Earth Mother all pass through the region and are important Ancestral Beings for local Aboriginal people.

    For thousands of years Aborigines recorded important ceremonies, deities and totemic plants and animals by painting their images in the rock shelters, cliffs and overhangs of the region. Artistic styles have evolved over time, from naturalistic forms to the intellectual X-ray style, where the internal anatomy of the subject is portrayed.

    Aboriginal Paintings at Ubirr and Nourlangie provides a guide to the art sites, many open to the public, explaining their significance for Aboriginal people, both past and present.

    The compelling and very human story of the first foreign assault on Australian soil since settlement - the attack on Darwin by the Japanese in February, 1942.
    Darwin was a battle Australia would rather forget. Yet the Japanese attack on 19 February 1942 was the first wartime assault on Australian soil. The Japanese struck with the same carrier-borne force that devastated Pearl Harbor only ten weeks earlier. There was a difference. More bombs fell on Darwin, more civilians were killed, and more ships were sunk.

    The raid led to the worst death toll from any event in Australia. The attackers bombed and strafed three hospitals, flattened shops, offices and the police barracks, shattered the Post Office and communications centre, wrecked Government House, and left the harbour and airfields burning and ruined. The people of Darwin abandoned their town, leaving it to looters, a few anti-aircraft batteries and a handful of dogged defenders with single-shot .303 rifles.

    Yet the story has remained in the shadows. Drawing on long-hidden documents and first-person accounts, Peter Grose tells what really happened and takes us into the lives of the people who were there. There was much to be proud of in Darwin that day: courage, mateship, determination and improvisation. But the dark side of the story involves looting, desertion and a calamitous failure of leadership. Australians ran away because they did not know what else to do.

    Absorbing, spirited and fast-paced, An Awkward Truth is a compelling and revealing story of the day war really came to Australia, and the motley bunch of soldiers and civilians who were left to defend the nation.
