The frank and hilarious account of an immigrant girl who follows her German lover to Darwin.

Adventurous, lovable and laughable, Mocco captures the heat and vibrance of Darwin and it's larrikins, in a decade where the Territory makes its own rules.

"I am on my way to Darwin to find a job. I have no money to but petrol or oil Man, I am desperate."

The bowser attendant suggested Niclas give him his watch as collateral and he would give him enough petrol to see him through to Darwin. "When you get a job, send me what you owe me and I'll send you your watch."

Eventually Niclas sent the money but never expected to see his watch again. Wrong! This was the Territory, this was Australia! His watch promptly came back to him in Darwin by post.
