A Tale of Four Cities


Darwin: A Tale of Four Cities

app / audio tour

In Darwin, every corner has a story. But its history can be hard to see. Destroyed four times by cyclones and war, Darwin's been rebuilt over and over. Yet in between the shiny high-rise are all sorts of secret historic spots to discover.


Darwin: A Tale of Four Cities is a first-of-its-kind, immersive, self-guided, audio walking tour that takes you to ten of these locations around Darwin's CBD. It is delivered to your mobile device or tablet via an app and headphones.


It was meticulously researched from Northern Territory collections and oral histories, the tour also features the extraordinary personal story of narrator Charlie King, a legendary Northern Territory broadcaster and campaigner and was funded by the Northern Territory Department of Tourism and Culture’s Live Darwin Arts program.


In an Australian-first, the tour is recorded binaurally, an innovative recording method that produces immersive 3D sound. Hundreds of locals were involved in re-creating historic soundscapes to support the audio stories that transport the listener back in time.
