As with most of Darwin, the area was part of the defense preparations and facilities during World War 11, with a lot of the WW2 ammunition bunkers built into the hillside and to this day are still present. And so 1 of the bunkers have been turned into a FREE display of WW11 photo’s and information, opened to the public from 8am to 5pm daily.
