One of our stops when visiting Darling, was a very small mall, called the Mantis Mall. The sweet shop in the mall is well-known for making exquisite toffee, called Darling Sweet. Members of the public can watch the whole process of toffee making from beginning stage to packaging stage. The toffee is entirely manufactured by hand, with most ingredients locally sourced.
The best room in Mantis Mall is definitely the bookshop. At the entrance of this small, but well stocked bookshop, is an exhibition of It’s a Book – by Lane Smith. Friendly ladies at the counter, excellent books on the shelves and a cat cuddling up between the shelves make this bookshop a must whenever you visit Darling.
