Bicentennial Park

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations Parks and Gardens

Perched on the cliffs of Darwin Harbour along The Esplanade, Bicentennial Park is a good place to catch a sea breeze or spend an afternoon following the WWII walking trail, picnicking or relaxing in the open grasslands.

Running the length of Darwin’s waterfront overlooking Darwin Harbour and shaded by tropical trees, the 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.

The park stretches from the Northern Territory’s Parliament House to Doctor’s Gully. It is the site for major gatherings such as memorial services and the Greek Glenti, but is also perfect for a game of footy, whatever the code. There is a network of shared pathways that offer access to areas such as Lameroo Beach and at the northwestern end, home to Doctor’s Gully fish feeding.
