Things to explore and do in Darwin is the World War II secret Oil Storage Tunnels. These giant Darwin tunnels had blood, sweat and tears in the hope, in part, to end the WWII. Made by the Civil Construction Corps.

The Darwin Aviation Museum (formerly known as Australian Aviation Heritage Centre) is an accredited Northern Territory tourism attraction hosting 30,000 visitors each year.
The museum's origins can be traced to 1976 when a group of enthusiasts sought to preserve aviation relics after the destruction of Cyclone Tracy. It was later broadened to include the documentation of World War II aircraft crash sites and the preservation of aviation relics related to the defence of Darwin during World War II. The original museum was first opened to the public in 1988. In the late 1980s, the Society negotiated with the United States Air Force (USAF) and the Northern Territory Government to obtain a surplus USAF Boeing B-52 Stratofortress bomber and to build a museum to house and display the aircraft. On 2 June 1990, the new Darwin Aviation Museum was officially opened.
