Burnett House and afternoon tea

On the Darwin itinerary of Sunday pleasures is a visit to Burnett House where afternoon tea is served in the shade of tropical trees. It’s a delightful way to catch up with friends and have a good chat. Burnett House is run by the National Trust and all the workers are volunteers. The house itself is an example of old Darwin architecture, one which has survived the ravages of the Bombing of Darwin and Cyclone Tracy.

Often they will play the old record player with 1950s music which matches the environment perfectly. The old furniture is also evocative of the era.
