•   East Point Military Museum
The East Point Military Museum was opened in 1969 as an artillery museum, established by the Royal Australian Artillery Association. Located in an old war bunker, it was Darwin`s first museum. Exhibitions include artillery, various armoured vehicles, Japanese weapons, history of the Japanese bombing of Darwin. It also houses part of the Territory Arms and Armament Collection.

•   The Tree of Knowledge
The Tree of Knowledge is of social and historical importance, and it is valued for its associations with many phases in Darwin`s development. In the 1970s the community successfully campaigned to save the tree and have it incorporated into the Darwin Civic Centre Complex.

•   Deckchair Cinema
This Darwin delight is located behind the old Stokes Hill power station. Sit back and relax under the stars and enjoy a movie in the open air. The Deckchair Cinema operates from May to October, during the dry season.

•   Australian Aviation Heritage Centre
The Australian Aviation Heritage Centre features a B52 bomber as well as a Zero fighter shot down over Darwin in World War II, plus other exhibits of aviation history.

•   Browns Mart
The historic Browns Mart, built in 1885, is now a community arts centre and a small well-patronised theatre. It is on the heritage list and preserved as a place of interest.

•   Chinese Temple
The Chinese Temple represents an early link between the Top End and China. The local Buddhists, Taoists, and Confucianists still worship there. It is an interesting example of the rich racial mixture of Darwin. Visitors are welcome, however you are asked to refrain from entering the temple if people are worshipping.

•   Barramundi Fishing
Never been fishing but quite fancy the idea of catching The Big One? Take a trip to the Barramundi Fishing Farm, where expert help is on hand and you are guaranteed a catch. Or how about an amazing fishing experience - a helicopter ride to a remote spot on the Daly River and a licenced guide to help you.

•   Sunset Jazz
Join the locals as they relax on a Sunday evening. Lie back on the lawns of MGM Grand Casino and soak up the sounds of the resident jazz band. (Does not operate November to April).

•   Bathurst and Melville Islands
Take a trip to these islands and let the Aboriginal Tiwi people share their way of life with you.

•   Christchurch Cathedral
The original church was all but destroyed by Cyclone Tracy. The porch which commemorated the fallen of WWII was left intact and has been incorporated into the new structure.
