To the Larrakia this tree is known as Galamarrma and it provided shelter, tools, medicine and food to the Larrakia peopl."},{"type":"text","content":"Those wispy fibres protruding from the branches are roots. The Larrakia used this long fibrous material to make fishing lines, baskets and jewellery. By using natural dyes like charcoal, ochre or plant juice, the fibres could be coloured before being woven into colourful objects. The women would use the baskets when gathering food. Can you imagine the women sitting around in the shade weaving baskets?\n\nIf you get close to Galamarrma you might notice a sticky white substance that oozes from the leaves. This substance is latex and was uses by the Larrakia to treat skin infections. The sticky quality of the latex also made it useful as a glue.\n\nFrom October to May Galamarrma is laden with fruit. The small green fig is nutritious and was an important food source for the Larrakia. The fruit can be eaten directly from the tree, but it is not particularly tasty. The birds love them though. If you look up, you might see a yellow breasted bird flitting about the treetops. This is the Australasian Figbird. It is one of many birds that enjoys eating the fruit. The morning songs of these birds creates a peaceful backdrop to passers by.\n\n"},{"type":"text","content":"It isn’t clear how Galamarrma became known as the Tree of Knowledge. Some say that in the early days of Darwin settlement, groups of Chinese youth would meet with their elders in the shade. The elders would instruct the youth on how to live a good and successful life.\n\nIn those days, Galamarrma was in the middle of Chinatown. Chinese immigrants had travelled to Darwin from all over China for work opportunities and a chance to strike it rich.\n\nIn the late nineteenth century, construction of the overland telegraph line was underway and workers at Pine Creek discovered gold. Around the same time the railway was being constructed. There was plenty of work and more and more immigrants flooded into Darwin. By 1888 there about 1000 Europeans and more than 7000 Chinese people living in the Northern Territory.\n\nThe Chinese played an important role in the development of Darwin. Unfortunately they were not treated well by the Europeans and were forced to live in a shanty town. The shanty town became known as Chinatown and all the people of Darwin were drawn to it to experience the cuisine and unique culture including opium dens and gambling dens.\n\nChinatown was destroyed by fire in 1942 when Darwin was bombed during World War II; it was never rebuilt.\n\nAs the years passed, Galamarrma continued to serve as a meeting point, hosting rallies, protests and community meetings. Hawkers would spruik their wares beneath the canopy and friends would gather to chat.\n\nIn 1969, Galamarrma was to be removed to make way for the new Civic Centre, the building you see before you. Public pressure to keep the tree was so overwhelming that the construction plans were altered to accommodate Galamarrma within the design. The building was moved several metres away to allow Galamarrma space to continue growing. And grow it has done.\n\nIf you walk around Galamarrma you will see how those wispy roots have met the ground and become pillars of tangled supports for the large limbs that reach for the sun. Many press upon the building and others drape over the metal structures. The vast number of vines would consume the structure like an old ruin if allowed to wander unbridled. Given room to grow these branches would spread across the whole courtyard area.\n\n"},{"type":"text","content":"City of Darwin gardeners keep Galamarrma somewhat contained but it is a battle against nature and those battles can never be won.\n\nUp next is Brown's Mart Theatre, just across the park.\n\n"}]},{"address":"Brown's Mart","ttsFile":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FvK83EprUocEw9VylPUpe%2Ftts_4.mp3?alt=media&token=83a74e3b-42f8-408c-8cb2-2dbfe6272ae5","placeId":"ChIJ1ZamuwWRwCwRNqSY6THTnSQ","location":{"longitudeDelta":0.18593639059244998,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421,"latitude":-12.465370303510513,"longitude":130.84417480000002},"media":[{"type":"place","content":{"place_id":"ChIJ1ZamuwWRwCwRNqSY6THTnSQ"}},{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FvK83EprUocEw9VylPUpe%2Fbrown's%20mart.jpeg?alt=media&token=85a09751-933f-4dce-be4b-660bd85be03b"},{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FvK83EprUocEw9VylPUpe%2FIMG_0086.JPG?alt=media&token=46d3ca4b-c45b-4d70-9181-8bb6180249ee"},{"type":"link","title":"What's on at Brown's Mart","content":"https://brownsmart.com.au/whats-on/"},{"type":"text","content":"This classic old stone building is Brown’s Mart Theatre. This theatre boasts a story as rich and dramatic as any play performed on its stage. Built in 1885, its life began as a commercial venture. Vaiben Louis Solomon constructed it, initially naming it \"Solomon's Mart.\" Notably, it was one of the few buildings constructed from local stone, a wise decision considering the cyclones that would plague Darwin throughout history.\n\nIn 1887, Victor Vowles Brown took ownership, establishing the Port Darwin Mercantile and Agency Co. This shift led to the now-familiar \"Brown's Mart\" moniker. Over the years, the building served a variety of purposes, housing shipping agencies, a bank, and even the Northern Territory Mining Exchange.\n\nBrown's Mart proved its resilience in the face of adversity. It endured cyclones in 1897, 1937, and the devastating Cyclone Tracy in 1974. Each time, the building suffered significant damage, but it was always rebuilt, a testament to its strength. World War II also saw a temporary shift in use, as the armed forces requisitioned it for a period as a torpedo workshop.\n\nThe 1970s ushered in a new era. Fueled by the vision of Ken Conway, Darwin's first full-time community arts officer, and an Australian Council for the Arts grant, Brown's Mart underwent a significant transformation. In 1972, the historic building transitioned from a commercial space to a community theatre. This wasn't just a cosmetic change; it was the birth of a vibrant hub for artistic expression. Brown's Mart Theatre became a springboard for the Brown's Mart Community Arts Project, a platform for self-sufficient, community-driven arts initiatives.\n\nToday, Brown's Mart Theatre is a cherished landmark. Recognized for its historical and cultural significance, it's listed on the Northern Territory Heritage Register. It remains a prominent venue for major events like the Darwin Festival, the Darwin Fringe Festival, and local live music performances. Brown's Mart Theatre transcends being a stage – it's a symbol of Darwin's unwavering spirit and its deep commitment to the arts.\n\n"},{"type":"text","content":"Next up, the Parliament House of the Northern Territory"}]},{"address":"15 Mitchell St","ttsFile":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FvK83EprUocEw9VylPUpe%2Ftts_5.mp3?alt=media&token=33909dc5-0035-4f82-915d-536da1bac25e","placeId":"ChIJQctfLASRwCwRKlt0Uoi9KCM","location":{"longitudeDelta":0.1598130960464033,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421,"latitude":-12.466409773134803,"longitude":130.8429449289911},"media":[{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FvK83EprUocEw9VylPUpe%2FParliament%20(2).JPG?alt=media&token=007b7a04-e008-4ce3-b0fa-5644869a9b74"},{"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FvK83EprUocEw9VylPUpe%2FParliament.JPG?alt=media&token=f5946313-2c90-4b17-aecc-9604c045e50a"},{"type":"text","content":"Before you is the impressive structure that is the Northern Territory Parliament House.
