There is nothing like the fish and chips at the wharf. The whole Madden family went out for a very good dinner in a fantastic setting at sunset. We fed our left overs to the giant bat fish who hang around waiting for the easy carbs.
The barra and chips is about $6 and is too big for a mere mortal to finish. G + I didn't get through it but the bat fish and seagulls helped. If you get to Darwin one day, do try this.
The wharf overlooks Darwin Harbour which is much bigger than Sydney Harbour but not nearly as deep. The biggest ships I've seen here are naval vessels. The Americans used to frequent this place when I lived here but they don't seem to be around at the moment.
