Casuarina Coastal Reserve
This coastal strip, north of the suburb of Rapid Creek has a good sandy beach. There are a number of Aboriginal sites including a rock formation.

Charles Darwin National Park
A waterfront park close to the city and shows the mangrove habitats of Darwin Harbour. Tiger Brennan Drive.

Daly Street Lookout
Daly Street Lookout is at the northern end of the Esplanade and is especially good for viewing Darwin's beautiful sunsets.


East Point Reserve
East Point Reserve is just north of Mindil and Vestey's and has picnic areas and safe swimming. East Point Road.


Holmes Jungle Nature Park
Adjacent to Crocodylus Park this 250 ha park features natural eucalypt woodland with pandanus palms and some monsoon rainforest. Vanderlin Drive (08 8947 2305).

Survivors' Lookout
This viewpoint over the harbour tells the story of the bombing of Darwin in 1942 and shows photographs taken at that time, some looking out over the burning ships from roughly this point.

The Cenotaph
The Cenotaph lies on the grassy area to the west of the Esplanade. There is a lookout and there are commemorative plaques on the wall. Since Darwin has more vivid war memories than most Australian cities, being one of the few to suffer direct attacks, this monument somehow seems more poignant. This is another great location to view the sunset.
