Darwin residents have entered clean-up mode after the strongest cyclone to hit the city in 30 years caused widespread destruction.

Winds toppled trees and brought down powerlines across the city, leaving more than a third of Darwin properties without power.

Here are some of the images of the extensive damage caused by Cyclone Marcus.
