It's park time kids!
Running the length of Darwin's waterfront overlooking Darwin Harbour and shaded by tropical trees, Bicentennial Park is an excellent place to stroll, play, and enjoy that Darwin sun!
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.
Who knew Bicentennial Park would also offer an educational experience for kids!
Keep an eye out also for Darwin's tribute to 200 Remarkable Territorians - the hand-painted tiles in panels dotted along the Esplanade commemorate some of the Territory's 'quiet achievers', including pioneers, publicans and pastoralists.
It's a popular spot for cyclists, as 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 it 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.
Kids, you get your own special playground to enjoy too, if the parents just want to relax!
Fun in the Sun at Bicentennial Park. What are you waiting for kids? Grab those picnics, hats and sense of adventure, because we're off!
