    Churches, Mosques, Faith Centres and Temples in Darwin - What can we say we have been to nearly every church for a festival or to pray in the last few years.
    They all (and we mean all) are friendly especially fto vsiting folks. they are mostly small denominations and with the tropical lifestyle of Darwin you should feel right at home.
    We have given our vote to some of the most friendly places we have encountered.

    There many churches in Darwin. This picture says it all. We have a row of churches on Vanderlin Drive coming from Casuarina Shopping Square some 750metres away.
    There are Uniting Church, Potters House Christian Centre and a Mosque.

    Being on Asia's doorstep and Jetstar increasing services from Darwin to Asia we find many of our clients are Muslim, Catholic, Church of England, Uniting Church, Christian - so feel comfortable in knowing Darwin should have a place if you wish to visit.

    Chinese Temple

    Did you know - Darwin's temple was originally built on the Esplanade next to the old Court House.
    After complaints about the noise made during ceremonies and festivals it was moved to Woods Street in 1887.
    The Woods Street temple was damaged during the cyclones of 1897 and 1937 and also during the bombing of Darwin in 1942.
    At this time the furnishings and statues were looted and vandalised by Australian soldiers.
    The temple was restored and reopened on 22 February 1959. In 1974 Cyclone Tracy totally demolished the Temple.
    Funds were raised from Chinese communities around Australia to rebuild it according to the original design.
    The new temple was officially reopened on 28 September 1978.

    Location:
    The museum is conveniently located in the central district of Darwin 25 Woods Street, Darwin NT 0800

    Rob's Reminising!!! - Well we went to the lantern festival few weeks ago and it was great to see all the visiting folks from the Cavenagh Hotel come over when the Lion Dancers were performing.
    They don't advertise in the paper much so look at their notice board. Shame it had a large fire there December 2007.
    But it only burnt one room - the old Dragon Heads were the ones for training James mentioned.
    Every year on Chinese New Year the performers go around Darwin Businesses performing - Now imagine how hot they get in the humidity of February.
    Well done folks we really appreciate the performances.
