On the 19th of February each year, we commemorate the Anniversary of the Bombing of Darwin.
In 2022, it will be 80 years ago that Australia faced an unprecedented foreign attack on home soil.
In 2011, Bombing of Darwin Day joined ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day as a National Day of Observance.
The Bombing of Darwin Day is a day to reflect on our past and to pay tribute to those servicemen, servicewoman and civilians who were there - those who courageously defended our country, those who selflessly helped others, those who dealt with the aftermath, and of course, those who lost their lives. The 19th of February 1942 marked the first of at least 64 air raids on the Top End of Australia, which continued for 18 months, until November 1943. In commemorating this day, we are also passing the story on to the next generation.
