Salty Plums: they’re a little bit sweet, a little bit sour and a little bit salty. Some say if you’ve never tasted one, you’ve never been to the real Darwin. Introduced by Chinese migrants in the 17th Century, they’ve become a symbol of this city’s unique multicultural community. Darwin or Garramilla, as the Larrakia Traditional Owners call it, is a city plonked right in the middle of the tropical Top End, closer to Asia than any Australian capital city. Famous for crocodiles, sunset markets and a big cyclone called Tracy, yet, there’s so much more to this place. The city has a tumultuous past from a bombing attack in World War 2 to three big cyclones – all of which left it in pieces. Over the decades, people from 100 different nationalities have migrated to this city, to re-build it, as they fell in love, grew families and created a place to call home. Hosted by Larrakia woman Nicole Brown, Salty Plum Stories shares the experiences of six people from six different cultures, bringing you into the heart of the real Darwin, Salty Plums and all. Salty Plum Stories is a Discover Darwin podcast for the City of Darwin. It was produced by Lori Uden and Cinnamon Nippard, with editorial support from Johanna Bell and mixing by Hamish Robertson. The incredible soundtrack was composed and mixed by Kuya James and Tutup Mulut.
