This is one of the only times in Australia where it is legal to purchase and use fireworks.The annual beer-can regatta celebrates Darwinians love of the amber fluid, of which the cans are then used to build boats which are raced on water.

Choosing your Interstate Removalists
As with any removal, choosing the right interstate removalists to handle and look after your valuable items is absolutely critical.
Here are six points which you should be comfortable with before you make this decision:
1. Experience. Are they experienced at interstate removal?
2. Experience. Are they experienced with Sydney removal?
3. Insurance. Are they fully insured?
4. Can they fit to your timeline?
5. Are you comfortable with the how they deal with you?
6. NEVER make this important decision based on price alone.
As your furniture and goods will be traveling extended distances to arrive in Darwin, good packing becomes even more important. You may choose to pack yourself (which will obviously be cheaper) but you will need to ensure that you use removal cartons only and that all breakable items are wrapped in paper to protect them.
The removalists rely heavily on the ability of the packers and need to be comfortable to stack cartons up to five high or use them as building blocks in the load. A brief rule of thumb is that the average house will have one “fragile” carton only. Otherwise, the professional team at South West Removals can pack for you.
