World War II Beyond Darwin

Hidden in the north of Australia is a network of World War II highlighting a military past. Many WWII relics remain today, ‘down-the-track’ and on this full-day tour, you'll be transported inland to visit a few of these sites.

The highlight of your day is a guided tour of the No. 4 Repair and Salvage Unit (4RSU) which sits on private land adjacent to Pell Airstrip. Refreshments will be served, 1940s style as you browse some of the interesting artifacts that have been discovered on the farm.

Time for reflection at Adelaide River War Cemetery before enjoying a hearty lunch at Adelaide River Inn.

Further exploration of the Coomalie district is not complete without a visit to the Batchelor Museum housing displays that honour the men who were stationed at the Civil Aerodrome which became an important base for Allied Air operations during the war.

The final stop before returning to Darwin is Strauss Airstrip where the airplane revetments are clearly visible 78 years on.

Fantastic way to start the day. John was a fantastic tour guide and was able to highlight so many things we would not have noticed. I recommend that you give this one and go as you will learn so much. Thanks

Thank you for this 5-star review and your recommendation. It's great to hear you enjoyed the leisurely walk through the city and, as you've experienced, it's worth walking with someone who lives here as you do get to see and learn so much more about the town. John sure is a font of knowledge!

A really informative walk through Darwin city centre. Out host (John) was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. The pace was good and not too rushed, which we really enjoyed. Highly recommended

I visited Darwin at end of dry season (& midst 2nd wave of COVID-19) & was chuffed to have the guides all to myself on all three tours (Botanic Gardens, Darwin Heritage & WWII Beyond) I did with Walk Darwin; this made for a more personalised experience than I was expecting. Pricing for all tours was extremely reasonable. I cannot commend Brian, Yvonne & John enough; all were long-time locals, personable, very knowledgeable (about Darwin/WW II history & botany) & more than capable of answering my myriad of questions. Unlike many other tour guides I've had, if they didn't know the answer, they didn't fob you off with some phoney response! On WWII Beyond tour got to visit many historic sites that are unavailable (on private land) or well & truly off the beaten tourist track. Would HIGHLY recommend any of the Walk Darwin tours to others.

The walk Darwin tour was exceptional. I learnt so many things about Darwin's history and got a real sense of the challenges it has overcome. I look forward to doing a different tour again soon.
