Cullen Bay: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Myilly Point Heritage Precinct

The four houses making up the Myilly Point Heritage Precinct are the last of their kind in their original location and are prime examples of pre World War II Darwin architecture. This precinct represents the conclusion of a Commonwealth Government policy for an 'approved housing scheme' for high-ranking government officers, originally formulated under the first major town planning scheme of the early 1930s.

The creative talents of the architect B.C.G. Burnett were to change the face of Darwin. Burnett designed a series of homes adapted to the climatic conditions of the Top End, which included the use of lightweight materials and natural ventilation. The houses have had continuous use as housing from their date of construction, are the best surviving examples of B.C.G. Burnett's work.

Entry is via a gold coin donation.

Burnett House is open for high tea every Sunday (charge applies), please contact the National Trust for further details.

Ever thought of feeding fish in the ocean, at Doctors Gully, right in the heart of Darwin, is Aquascene, where hundreds of fish come to shore at high tide to be fed by hand. The daily fish feeding ritual began over 50 years ago, when a nearby resident started throwing bread scraps to a few small mullet at high tide.

Today visitors come from near and far to participate in this unique spectacle. Trays of bread are provided at regular intervals during the feeding period for hand feeding the mullet and milkfish. Many other species including catfish, rays, cod, diamond fish and parrot fish may also be seen in the shallows if you watch carefully.

Darwin Harbour is subject to tide movements of up to eight metres and the fish that visit Aquascene can only come to the shore for a few hours each day, and then return to sea with the tide. Morning feeding sessions are usually best, especially between the months of December and August when fish numbers are highest. As feeding times change daily with the tides and Aquascene is only open at those times, it is important to check this information before visiting the fish feeding.

Territory Day

Territory Day is one of the most spectacular events on the festival calendar. For one day only the Territory lights up in a rainbow of rockets, bangers and Roman candles.

Celebrating the anniversary that self governance was handed down to the Territory by the Commonwealth Government, Territorians and visitors alike gather for public fireworks shows. They also compete with one another to produce the most brilliant pyrotechnics display on the only day of the year where people are allowed to light fireworks.

Mindil Beach in Darwin is a popular vantage point to watch the spectacular. With delicious food from the markets, people can picnic on the sand as they watch the fireworks burst and sparkle over the Timor Sea.
