State Square Banyan Tree

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Banyan Tree in State Square is valued by the community as a remnant of the original Darwin foreshore vegetation. It is over 200 years old and was the congregation point for the Larakia youths prior to ceremonies which took place under the nearby Tamarind tree.

The large mature banyan tree is growing near the Supreme Court building within State Square. The tree is in a large open grassed area and is surrounded by a low garden bed. The tree is of significance and provides a shady place to sit in the city.
