  • Aviation Museum
  • Bicentennial Park
    Perched on the cliffs of Darwin Harbour along The Esplanade, Bicentennial Park is a good place to catch a sea breeze or spend an afternoon following the WWII walking trail, picnicking or relaxing in the open grasslands. Running the length of Darwin's waterfront overlooking Darwin Harbour and shaded by tropical trees, the park is an excellent place to stroll. Be sure to visit the Cenotaph, Darwin's first war memorial commemorating Australians who lost their lives in WWI, and the Aboriginal men and women whose bush skills assisted the Army during WWII to protect the remote northern coastline. Discover Darwin's tribute to 200 Remarkable Territorians - hand-painted tiles in panels dotted along the Esplanade commemorate some of the Territory's 'quiet achievers', including pioneers, publicans and pastoralists. The park stretches from the Northern Territory's Parliament House to Doctor's Gully.
  • Berry Springs Nature Park
    Berry Springs is one of the most beautiful parks to cool off and relax in close to Darwin. It has great shaded picnic and barbeque areas close to clear swimming pools surrounded by trees and aquatic life. Walkers and bird watchers should take the monsoon forest and woodlands walk, through the Top End habitats. The park also has remnants of its World War II history, when more than 100,000 armed forces personnel were based in the area.
  • Crocodylus Park
    Crocodylus Park is the best place in Australia to come face to face with the largest reptiles on the planet! Built upon 30 years of experience in crocodile research and conservation, Crocodylus Park plays host to over a thousand crocodiles from 30 cm long hatchlings to massive adults measuring over 4.8 m and weighing more than half a ton! Our diverse array of other wildlife, including big cats, primates, birds and other reptiles, ensure the crocodiles don't steal all the limelight.
  • Casuarina nude beach
  • Darwin Water Front Restaurants
  • Doctor's Gully fish feeding
    About the Area. Darwin's small enclave of Doctors Gully is steeped in a rich tapestry of fascinating history. Named after Dr Robert Peel, surgeon with Surveyor General GW Goyder's first survey team in 1869 who found water '…in a gully between Fort Point and Point Emery', thus the name Doctors Gully.
  • Fannie Bay Gaol
    Opened in September 1883, Fannie Bay Gaol was Darwin's main prison for almost 100 years until 1979, when prisoners were relocated to the correctional facility located in Berrimah. An infirmary was added in 1887, which contained gallows used up until the last executions held in the Northern Territory in 1952. Male and female prisoners were held in separate buildings from 1928. The female prison block included a small garden designed to keep the prisoners busy. A watch tower, "native section" for Aboriginal prisoners, kitchen mess building, remand section and two maximum security wings were added during the 1950s. Now an important historic site, Fannie Bay Gaol attracts thousands of visitors each year.
