Darwin Golf Club


Play a round on the tropical 18-hole championship course at Darwin Golf Club. As well as a manicured tropical course and a relaxing restaurant overlooking the lawns, the club hires out clubs, carts, and buggies.

Located in Darwin's northern suburbs, the Darwin Golf Club is home to a tropical 18-hole championship course designed by Peter Thompson and Michael Wolveridge. The luxuriant fairways and greens are well maintained year round. The course demands accuracy from the tee and a good touch on and around the greens.

The large African mahogany and palm-lined fairways are skirted by out of bounds on almost every hole. This exciting Top End course offers fun for all golf enthusiasts.

Tee times are available to the general public 7 days a week - call the pro-shop to check availability and book in advance. There are various practice facilities available for use by the general public, including a floodlit driving range.

After the game head to the Northlakes Chinese Restaurant for a drink and Cantonese, Szechuan and Malaysian cuisine as well as south-east Asian fare.

The Darwin Golf Club hires out half or full sets of clubs, motorised carts, pull buggies and electric 'pull' buggies.

Holmes Jungle Nature Park


Holmes Jungle Nature Park protects one of the few remaining areas of monsoon forest in the Darwin area. Located on the fringe of the city's northern suburbs, the park is popular with picnickers and walkers at any time of the year.

The park covers 250 hectares, with Palm Creek winding its way through the centre. Marvel at the panoramic views of the wetlands to the north, monsoon forest to the east and undulating ridges and savannah woodlands to the south from the main picnic area. Keep an eye out for Spangled Drongoes and the Torres Strait Imperial-pigeons in the wet season. The tiny Red-backed Fairy-wren is commonly found in clumps of pandanus throughout the Park. Take the Jungle Walk along Palm Creek through the monsoon forest, and then a further section of track to the main picnic area, which provides easy access to Palm Creek. Cyclists and horseriders are welcome, on a separate shared track.

Holmes Jungle Nature Park has been popular for picnics since first non-Aboriginal settlement of Darwin over 100 years ago. Large numbers of birds, mammals and reptiles breed and seek refuge in the monsoon forest, with the dense vegetation offering protection from the heat and predators.
