History/Origin A Sister City of Darwin since 1982. Initial moves for a sister city link began with former Darwin Mayor, Dr Ella Stack, in 1976 when she visited Anchorage in Alaska, United States of America. The Chief Minister at the time, Mr Paul Everingham, had also visited Anchorage and was supportive of the link. The keys to the link were based on similarities such as steps to statehood, the development of mining and the establishment of a university in a remote frontier territory, accustomed to natural disaster and isolation.
