Ratings and Reviews

Excellent app


Like many people (in and out of Australia), I learned that Japan had attacked Australia from the movie "Australia." In fact, it was the same task force that attacked Pearl Harbor.

This app offers an excellent historical review of the attack of Darwin. It is very informative, even if you never visit Darwin.

I've been to Darwin, and we took a tour, "The Attack on Darwin." It was informative and enjoyable, but would have been even better if I had this app then.

On our next visit to Australia (from USA), we'll return to Darwin and make great use of this app.

Thanks to the developers. Great app!
