Love the variety of Volgrens (made even better with all the flat window lines)! I'd definitely like to visit Darwin someday.

It is sure a great place to visit, if you like warm, humid weather (And hardly a fly about)
Was only going to stay Sunday-Wednesday, but could only get on the Ghan on the Saturday, so a week in Darwin was really something.

Great to see how things are done way up north, maybe the rest of Australia could learn a lesson or two.

The Darwin buses are always so immaculate.
The views expressed by me are mine and mine only. They do not neccesarily fall in line with the views of my friends, family, collegues or my employer.

Those were awesome buses. I really wonder that still public transport rocks. You might happy to know that Luxury bus-maker Volvo unveiled a range of four multi – axle buses.
