3 houses for different purposes
In the picture below are two vessels. The large cruise ship is the Sea Princess which is one among 8 or so cruise ships docking in Darwin this month. These visitors help the economy and I sincerely hope they leave with a positive memory of their time in Darwin despite the humidity.
The vessel in the background is a container ship bringing in prebuilt demountable housing for the Inpex workers village located at Howard Springs on the outskirts of Darwin and Palmerston. The Inpex gas project will provide substantial income to the Northern Territory.
The top left side of the photograph is the corner of a white building which is our Parliament House and during the last week its occupants have provided very little help to the Northern Territory economy, but like both vessels behind them that are contributing, we hope this vessel can be turned around.
