Channel Island Leprosaurium and Reefs

Channel Island was declared a Quarantine Station by the Chief Secretary in August 1884 when all vessels had to be cleared before anchoring at Port Darwin. It was used for a leprosy patient in 1885 and for small-pox patients from 1887. Permanent structures were not erected until September 1914 when Channel Island was one of four 'first-aid' or minor stations for all cases of disease requiring isolation. In 1930 a new Quarantine Station was opened on East Arm and Channel Island was converted to a Leprosarium. The Leprosarium is culturally significant because it provides a unique view of a compulsorily isolated group of people who existed under extreme physical and, in some cases, mental conditions. It demonstrates an official policy of enforced segregation of diseased people. The ruins are evidence of the Quarantine requirements of the period, including segregation, at a time when the rest of the world was modifying its compulsory isolation laws. The Channel Island Reef is significant for its diverse coral.

Delissaville Belyuen Cemetery

The site comprises the community cemetery at Belyuen and it is still in use. The cemetery contains early and recent graves within an enclosure defined by a chainwire mesh fence. There are shelters inside the perimeter to provide some shade during burial services. The Delissaville Cemetery, located at Belyuen, Cox Peninsula west of Darwin, is of heritage significance to the Territory as a uniquely Aboriginal cemetery extending for a period of over 60 years. As the final resting-place for at least 100 Aboriginal people who died in or near Delissaville from the early-mid 20th century up to present times, and for repatriated ancestral remains of Larrakia and other Aboriginal people from the early 1900s, the cemetery holds high significance for the Belyuen, Larrakia and wider Aboriginal communities for spiritual, social and religious reasons.

Former Southport Police Station and Telegraph Station site

Southport was a significant township in the early development of the Northern Territory. The remnants at Southport offer an example of early township life in the Northern Territory between 1872 and 1889. Little remains of both sites except for the floor slabs and foundation stones of the Police Station and the floor slab, section of stone wall and a well for the Telegraph Station.

Southport Cemetery

The site is the former Southport town site cemetery.

The Southport Cemetery, circa 1873 - 1887, located south west of Darwin, is associated with the town of Southport, which was surveyed by George Woodroofe Goyder in 1869 and settled soon afterwards. Southport was an important district centre and port for the construction crews of the Overland Telegraph Line and prospectors travelling to the inland goldfields, and despite its short life, played a fundamental role in the development of the Territory. Sixty six (66) people are recorded as being buried in the cemetery, mostly Chinese.

Difficulties in living in a tropical climate in a remote location may be inferred from the numbers and causes of deaths and the variety of age, sex and former occupations of the deceased provide significant information in determining the population profile of Southport. The Southport Cemetery provides a tangible reminder of the exploits and lives of many who have contributed to the development of the Territory. Each grave represents the last resting place of people whose contribution collectively is important to the interpretation of the Territory's historical, social and cultural background.

Territory Wildlife Park

At the Territory Wildlife Park you can see the Top End of Northern Australia in 4 hours rather than 4 days! The Wildlife Park gives visitors authentic and up-close encounters with the animals and plants of the Top End. The Park is a mix of zoo-type exhibits and natural bush, with attractions spread out around a 4km loop road linked with free shuttle trains and natural walking paths. The Main Station Cafe, Nocturnal House and Aquarium are airconditioned. The Park is a 45 minute drive south of Darwin city adjacent to the Berry Springs Nature Park.

Walk through treetop aviaries, stroll around a natural lagoon and walk into the tunnel beneath an aquarium to stand nose to nose with a 3.7-metre saltwater crocodile. The Monsoon Vine Forest Walk goes through an area supported by the springs that flow into Berry Creek, which is traditionally significant to the local aboriginal people.

The place comes to life during school holiday breaks when the Park schedules great educational workshops and interactive programs to keep the kids entertained for hours.

Berry Springs Nature Park

Berry Springs Nature Park is a picturesque area 47 kilometres south of Darwin that is a popular daytrip destination for picnics, with shady areas with tables and barbecues. Work up an appetite for lunch with a swim or a bushwalk.

Cool off in one of Berry Creek's clear and shady pools, and if you've brought your goggles along, you should be able to spot native fish and other aquatic life. Or explore the area on foot - the looped walking track takes you through monsoon forest and woodlands. It starts from the picnic area - don't forget your binoculars if you are keen on birdwatching. Visit the Park during March and April to see the native plants in flower and grasslands at their best.

During World War II, Berry Springs was part of a rest and recreation camp set up by the armed forces for the 100,000 personnel based in the area. A number of huts and weirs were built at Berry Springs during this time, and you can still see the remains around the main pool.
