It was a long drive to the War Cemetery but it was definitely worth it. It was very well maintained and there's a short video nearby on the bombing of Darwin and has boards explaining the history of the place. Definitely a place to see.

One of the few things to stop and have a look at on the way down to Nitmiluk (Katherine) and another chance to find out more about Darwin and WWII and see where the people killed in Post Office Bombing and soldiers were buried.

This is the main cemetery for victims of ww2 Japanese attacks on Darwin and surrounding areas. It is really well kept and has some information on the conflict.
