There's nothing better than sipping tea in a beautiful setting, and what better place to do this in Darwin than at the elegant Burnett House, with its lush gardens and incredible views across the harbour.
After surviving bullets, bombs and cyclones, Burnett House, one of the city's best examples of tropical architecture, is now in the hands of the National Trust.
Wind down after a busy weekend with a delightful afternoon tea, available every third Sunday of the month from 2pm until 5pm until November.
Please call 0889 810 165 for bookings.
Savour delicious specialty cakes and scones with freshly prepared jam and clotted cream, along with tea and coffee. Take tea in the house's original drawing room or on the veranda overlooking the garden. Afterwards, head upstairs for a peek at the small museum, which gives a good idea of life in Darwin during World War II.
