The World War II Oil Storage Tunnels were built during WWII by the Civil Construction Corps. This unique tourist attraction is an atmospheric adventure through bleak tunnels and stairways under the ground to a secret room filled with photographs that capture the imagination and lend a personal touch to cold history.
Located beneath the cliffs of Darwin city, a short walk from the city centre and the Esplanade this exciting tourist facility can be self guided. Or your well informed tour guide provides historical information relating to the concept of the tunnels.
The WWII Tunnels these days feature a photographic display of Darwin during WWII including photographs of the brave men and women who served in the protection of our great country.
2012 was the 70 Commemorative Anniversary of the Bombing of Darwin.
