My travel in Australia

I spent 3 months in Australia (from december 2018 to february 2019 ) . During this travel, I visited a lot of museums : the darwin military museum, the museum of Northern Territory and the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens. My favorite museum is the museum of Northern Territory . I visited differents exhibitions, one of them was about spiders . I've seen 3D reproductions of species of spider and real specimens . I have a little fear because specimens was very realistic and some was venomous and dangerous.  I liked it, because it was very interessant. I also explored the Australian's Rainforest, and I loved it because living in nature is a very intense experience : seen the animals in live, explored the rainforests ... It was very splendid . I've finished my travel by the visit of the Great Barieer Reef : I rent diving equipment and I have seen kilometers of corals, beautiful tropical fishes, sharks and dolphins .

The city of Darwin

Darwin is the capital and the most populated city of the North Territory of Australia . In 2014, Darwin counted 140 400 inhabitants . It is also the city with the most marine crocodile accidents, because of "the salties", a specie of crocodile, up to seven meters long and weighting nearly a ton, who attack humans .

Darwin has grown from an outpost of settlers and a small port city to one of Australia's most modern and cosmopolitan cities . It is the smallest and most northerly of Australian capitals .

A long time before the arrival of the Europeans Colons, the group of aboriginals "Larrakia" lived in this region. A lot of them  has been massacred by "white men" and many youngest "creamies" have been torn away from their families. 

The only university in the area, Charles Darwin University, is located there. Principals touristics attractions  of Darwin are :

The basket ball

                                                  

The basket ball, which is practiced exclusively by hand, iscollective sport opposing two teams of five players on a rectangular ground . Players have to throw a ball in a metal circle high up . Players can move ball in hand by dribbling on the ground or by taking two steps without dribbling . The team in possession of the ball (the attackers) attempts to score with shots, double-steps or dunks while the defending team tries to stop them by making ball interceptions or counter-attacks. If the shot fails, players of both teams attempt to catch the ball in rebound. Each basket scored earns two points for his team, except for shooting beyond the three-point line that earns three points and free throws awarded for a foul that earn a point . The team with the most points wins the game. The players of the basket ball wear jersey, shorts and sneakers.
