Bicentennial Park Darwin
Where are we going today?
Running the length of Darwin's waterfront overlooking Darwin Harbour and shaded by tropical trees, the Bicentennial 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.
There is a network of shared pathways that offer access to areas such as Lameroo Beach and at the North western end, Doctor’s Gully fish feeding, so this is a lovely little spot in the middle to break for a picnic lunch and some great family outdoor games in all the open space.
When can we go?
Year round daylight access.
Any Top Tips?
Remember to take plenty of outdoor play stuff, like frisbees, bat and ball and any other favourites: you'll have plenty of space to enjoy them in!.
