Darwin Heritage Walk
The untold history and heritage behind modern Darwin
For a city that looks like new, Darwin has a lot of history when you scratch beneath the surface.
As you walk the paths of pioneers, our guides will cheerfully share their passion for the town they call home as they tell of its history through the World War II bombings and Cyclone Tracy, to current day. Discover many of the remaining buildings such as the old Court House and Police Station, Browns Mart and the Old Palmerston Town Hall ruins, all of which have been painstakingly reconstructed. View Government House, Parliament House and the Northern Territory Supreme Court on our journey through the streets of this modern tropical city.
There are many hidden treasures to see on foot and plenty of opportunities to capture photographs of the public artworks, architecture, historic buildings, tropical plants and wildlife.
Raintree Park (corner of Smith and Knuckey Sts) under the John McDouall Stuart statue, corner of Smith Street Mall and Knuckey Street. Look for the person in the bright orange shirt.
