This five-day tour commemorates the 80th anniversary of the Bombing of Darwin. The total number of bombs dropped was two-and-a-half times that dropped at Pearl Harbour.
Darwin is a unique tropical Australian city magnificently situated on the Arafura Sea. On 19 February 1942, World War II was brought to the shores of Australia when the Japanese dropped bombs over Darwin. On this day 235 people, both armed forces personnel and civilians, lost their lives. Eleven ships were sunk and 30 aircraft destroyed. A section of the wharf was destroyed, killing 22 waterside workers. Over the next 21 months, Darwin, Adelaide River, Katherine and Milingimbi in Arnhem Land were bombed 77 times.

Thank you to the beautiful Tammy who recently booked my holiday. She made everything so easy. I highly recommend booking through her.
We couldn’t be happier with Redcliffe Travel. Their wonderful agent, recently booked our flights to Zimbabwe. Her attention to detail was fantastic! Her communication was outstanding, keeping us updated and even checking in after our return to ensure our travel went smoothly. We highly recommend the team at Redcliffe Travel.
We have just returned from our second holiday organised and booked through Redcliffe Cruise and Travel. It's so comforting to deal with such a professional and caring staff member. Thanks heaps for your outstanding service once again.
The Australia part of our trip has sadly finished. In a word, it has been amazing! We owe a lot to our travel agent, who asked the right questions, gave us insightful guidance when planning this trip and basically ironed out the wrinkles we would have undoubtedly experienced had it not been for her assistance. You will discover that her professionalism and attention to detail is world class and her customer service is second to none.
We had a terrific family holiday arranged by Redcliffe Cruise Travel and we wouldn't hesitate to have them assisting us with our next trip. Because we like you guys! Because you are a local company. Because we like having an agent behind us in the event things go wrong on the journey.
As popular as do-it-yourself travel is and as savvy as we are with all things online, there are some aspects of travel that are much better dealt with through a travel agency and someone who really knows what they are doing. Redcliffe Cruise and Travel are so knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with those aspects of travel that are challenging. It's good to work through someone who knows what they are doing and who take as much interest in you having a great holiday as you do!!
The service provided is always helpful and comprehensive. The booking documentation is always delivered on time to allow checking and to make changes if necessary.
I have used Redcliffe Cruise and Travel twice now to book our family holidays. We have found the team to be very professional and efficient. They have been very obliging when I have had to ask questions regarding our holiday. We will definitely be using Redcliffe Cruise and Travel in the future.
