Cullen Bay: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Myilly Point Heritage Precinct


The Myilly Point Heritage Precinct comprises four houses constructed between 1936 and 1939 to provide accommodation for senior public servants. Audit House (Type B Amended) on Lot 1098 was designed by the Commonwealth Government (probably Wilfred Haslam) and the other three houses were designed by BCG Burnett. Burnett House (Type K) on Lot 1099 is the only two-storey house on the precinct. The house on Lot 1100 was destroyed in Cyclone Tracy in 1974 and the site remains undeveloped. The other two houses on Lots 1101 and 1102 are Type E residences.

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.

Aquascene


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.

Gardens Road Cemetery


The Gardens Road Cemetery was opened on 10 April 1919. The Cemetery served as the official cemetery for Darwin until 11 December 1970. Its service to the Darwin community encompassed two world wars and catered for a fast growing multi-cultural society including Greek, Japanese, Chinese, Malay, Northern European, Anglos and Celts.
The cemetery exists as a microcosm of Darwin's history and social associations with representatives from each ethnic group that made up of the culture of Darwin. The Depression years saw many of the older, more prominent Darwin families bury their dead, with Japanese divers, ordinary citizens and a number of servicemen interred in the cemetery. From the outbreak of war in 1939 a number of servicemen, mainly RAAF were buried at Gardens Road Cemetery, as were a number of American servicemen from late 1941.
