The Darwin Audio Tours app is brought to you by the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. It features two self-guided audio walking tours in Darwin.

On the Inside shares the hidden stories of Darwin’s notorious Fannie Bay Gaol narrated by Larrakia Elder Dr Richard Fejo. Fannie Bay Gaol is located on the corner of East Point Rd and Ross Smith Ave, Fannie Bay, Darwin and is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10am – 2pm.

A Tale of Four Cities is an audio walking tour of central Darwin. Destroyed four times through cyclones and war, the real Darwin can be hard to see. Over one hour, local broadcaster Charlie King OAM, will introduce you to Darwin's Traditional Custodians, others who fought to survive here, and the mad visionaries who built a new Darwin after each disaster.

Recorded binaurally, both tours feature immersive 3D stereo sound recorded with the help of dozens of Darwin locals. Simply download the free app, put your headphones on and step back in time.

Superb tour

This tour is incredibly well researched and produced. Having lived in Darwin for 25 years I still learnt new things on this trip around old Darwin. The history was brought to life so well through the narration, sound effects and details of the stories. It was a delightful - and at times emotional - journey that captured the essence of Darwin through the eyes of its past and present residents. This is by far the best tour of this kind and I would highly recommend it to anyone living in or visiting Darwin as a superb intro to this city and its amazing history.

Best tour ever

This audio tour is outstanding...I don't think I've ever enjoyed a tour so much - either in person or recorded.
I don't often leave reviews but I want to tell everyone I can about how entertaining this was!!
And a special shoutout to you for getting the timing between sites right, I can't imagine that was easy...it really felt like Charlie was walking right beside me!

A must listen in Darwin

Loved this audio tour-it drew out so much of Darwin’s history in an incredibly accessible and easy to listen to style. Beautifully narrated by Charlie King, great to hear the personal stories which brought the tour to life. The sound effects made you feel as though you were right there. A must listen to for locals and visitors alike!! Thanks.
