Went for a walk on the beach and then used the public BBQ to cook dinner and eat it while the sun set. Park and BBQs were top quality. No toilets I could see.

A really beautiful place to stroll around for families and couples and not far from Darwin city. It would be a lovely place for a picnic.

We drove around East Point, which had nice roads and decent ocean views, but it's dry and dusty with not a lot to see. We happened across the Military Museum (hubby is a veteran and he thought it was a complete waste of time) then...More

We found a number of birds flitting in and around the trees on the point including a Forest Kingfisher. Great for anyone into bird photography. Also enjoyed checking out the mangroves and taking photos of the Darwin skyline across the bay.
