DoubleTree by Hilton Esplanade Darwin

116 The Esplanade, Darwin NT, Australia

Situated next to Darwin Entertainment Centre and overlooking the Esplanade, the welcoming DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Esplanade Darwin is only a 15 minute drive from Darwin International Airport and offers easy access to Stuart Highway.

Your Historical Experience

WWII BEYOND DARWIN:
Following the aerial attack on Darwin in February of 1942, airstrips and camp sites were cleared south along the Stuart Highway to support and supply the northern defense forces. Many WWII relics remain today ‘down-the-track’ and on this full-day tour, Walk Darwin will transport you inland to visit a few of the remaining accessible sites. The highlight of your day is a guided tour of the No. 4 Repair and Salvage Unit (4RSU) camp which sits on private land at Pell Mell, a working cattle farm just north of Adelaide River. There will also be time to reflect on WWII in the Top End at Adelaide River War Cemetery before enjoying a hearty lunch (meal included).

Walk Darwin

Darwin City

Further exploration of the Coomalie district includes a visit to the Batchelor Museum housing displays honouring the men who were stationed at the Civil Aerodrome which became an important base for Allied Air operations during the war. The final stop before returning to Darwin is Strauss Airstrip where the airplane revetments are clearly visible 75 years on. Departs: City hotel pickups are provided. If you are staying outside of Darwin City, select one of the city hotels as your preferred pickup point. A level of fitness is required on this tour as there will be short walks through bushland, across uneven surfaces and on inclines.
