WWII Oil Storage Tunnels Tour

Cultural and Theme Tours

The World War II Oil Storage Tunnels were built during the Second World War by the Civil Construction Corps. This unique tourist attraction, located in the Darwin Waterfront Precinct on Kitchener Drive, remained secret to the public until they were opened as a tourist attraction in 1992 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Bombing of Darwin.

This unique historical attraction has recently upgraded it’s interpretation boards to allow for an easy, self guided experience. Come and see the Digger Man – fully constructed from WWII items and artifacts.

Opening hours:
October – May: 9am – 1pm
June – September: 9am – 4pm
Closed December 7 – 27 and New Years Day.

Private and school groups welcome. Guided podcasts available
