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.

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.
