Ticket Information

  • Admission: Free

This Park protects areas of natural and cultural significance. It protects part of the Port Darwin wetland, one of Australia's most significant wetlands. It protects locally significant woodlands too.

Port Darwin is recognised as a nationally significant wetland because it is large, (48 sq. km) and diverse. Thirty-six of the N.T.'s 51 mangrove species occur in its convoluted system of inlets, islands and bays.

The Park lies on Frances Bay in Port Darwin, and includes the western bank of Sadgroves Creek, Reichardt Creek and part of Blessers Creek. Housing and industrial estates are its neighbours.

Although this Park is new, the land has history. Shell middens in the area show that Aboriginal people have used the land for thousands of years. Today, the Larrakia people speak for this land.

The area was part of a network of World War II military sites established during the development of Darwin as Australia's northern defence line. The historic ammunition storage and testing areas were built in 1944.
