Darwin Harbour

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Dotted with sunken ships from World War II, Cyclone Tracy and confiscated Indonesian fishing vessels, Darwin Harbour is surrounded by scenic mangroves and pristine tidal waters, meeting at Darwin’s cosmopolitan foreshore.

Larger than Sydney Harbour, Darwin Harbour offers a range of recreational activies, supports a diverse range of marine ecosystems, has significant cultural heritage and is a vital transport hub for northern Australia.

Take a voyage of discovery around the foreshore, spend a day out fishing for barramundi, jewfish, golden snapper and threadfin salmon or go for an adventurous scuba dive around the wrecks. There are a number of very popular options for discovering the true extent of the harbour.
