WWII HERITAGE PASS

 

wwii heritage pass

During World War Two (WWII), Darwin became the first mainland site in Australia to come under direct attack from the enemy; targeted more than 64 times by Japanese air raids. This caused huge devastation and many civilian casualties. The Top End played a key strategic role in the defence of Northern Australia and much of it's unique military heritage is well preserved. Gun emplacements, oil storage tunnels, bunkers, military airstrips and lookout posts are scattered in and around the city. Visitors are encouraged to explore this fascinating and often overlooked chapter in Australia’s history.

This WWII Heritage Pass gives you access to 4 of the Top End's educational facilities such as Royal Flying Doctor Services Darwin Tourist Facility, the WWII Oil Tunnels, find out the fascinating history of Darwin's war time involvement during WW2 at Darwin Military Museum and visit the impressive presentation of aircraft and displays in Darwin Aviation Museum.

From date of purchase you'll have 30 days to use your admission passes.
