The National Park provides a good view of Darwin City from across the bay and has a nice picnic area. Ammunition bunkers from World War II are dotted throughout the Park and one provides a display of relevant historical material.

All very interesting with WW2 munitions depots, one of which is open full of historical photos plaques etc for one to read and marvel at. The park is well kept and great to look over at Darwin from the lookout. Well worth the drive.

Couldn't walk around much because it was raining but could go into the bunkers and have a look, interesting to see the removed ones as well. Lots to learn in the one that is open and see history of what people experienced during the war.

For a great view of the city, go here. That's not all though, there's trails to hike and some war bunkers. Get close to Darwin's nature without paying an arm and a leg for a tour. $3 on the bus will get you there. Take...More
