The major display item is a massive B-52 bomber on permanent loan from the United States Air Force and is one of only two on public display in the world outside the USA.

WWII Oil Storage Tunnels

Kitchener Drive, Wharf Precinct Darwin NT 0800

Unique Darwin tourist attraction featuring World War II history. The World War II Oil Storage Tunnels located on Kitchener Drive at the wharf were constructed during World War II by the Civil Construction Corps to protect the Darwin's oil supplies from the Japanese. Today the tunnels, an engineering feat in themselves, house a collection of photographs of Allied wartime activity in the Top End. This is an attraction with a difference.

OPENING HOURS
Monday to Sunday: 9am - 1pm October to May
