Hayes Creek: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Burrundie Explosive Magazines


The building is a simple rectangular storage space measuring 6.3m x 3.1m with a vaulted ceiling 3.8m high. The walls vary in thickness from 750mm at dado level to 600mm at frieze level. The storage chamber is entered through a wooden door from a vestibule which is 1.5m x 1.8m in plan with a 3.7m high barrel vaulted ceiling fitted with quadruple bolted steel fire-proof entry door in a steel frame. A system of air vents have prevented the ingress of rain and fire and has proved to be remarkably effective in the role of stabilising air temperature and humidity required for the storage of explosives.

Butterfly Gorge Nature Park


Cool crevices in the rock face of beautiful Butterfly Gorge provide shelter for thousands of Common Crow Butterflies. The rock pools provide a chance for a refreshing swim and are shaded by paperbarks up to 50 metres tall. This quiet gorge is tucked away at the base of a low sandstone plateau. The sheer rock faces, edged by dense riverine vegetation and rocky spinifex country, offer shaded riverine walks and stunning scenery.

Past logging industries removed many of the melaleucas and the timber was used to build the Stokes Hill Wharf in Darwin. The park protects a part of the Douglas River that eventually flows into the Daly River, about 50 kilometres downstream. The gorge and main swimming area are a 10 minute walk from the car park and you can swim across the main pool and through the narrow gorges to reach the upper pools. More enthusiastic walkers may climb up the rocky slopes to reach the top of the gorge with views of the rock pools.

Butterfly Gorge Nature Park is usually open from May to October each year.
