This is just another gem in this wonderful city. Darwin has so much to offer. There's a really lovely 6 or 7k walk around the perimeter of the reserve with great coastal views, some stunning properties, the mangrove boardwalk, the military museum - lots to do. And after enjoying the walk, treat yourself at the Fannie Bay Cool Spot cafe - see my separate review.

Need to drive here but the drive is worth it as the scenery is rewarding. You can get a view of central Darwin form here. You can also relax and swim at Alexander Lake. The sunset here is the most beautiful I have ever seen. Saw a Wedding party conducted here.

The people who created this reserve and the museum should receive Australian awards for their service to preserving this country's history. Lest we forget!

East Point reserve is a location I return to regularly as a local due to the diverse landscapes with the changing tides and weather that can be enjoyed. I've taken my husband there for romantic picnics at sunrise and my family enjoyed lying by Lake Alexander when they visited from the UK. It could be an entire day trip with the military museum, the mangrove boardwalk and relaxing at multiple locations along the coastline.

im tired after viewing all the war relics, museum, cliffs and lookouts. how did the troops build and man it ? and im only here a day. allow plenty of time to see it all and take water. or, if limited time / mobility at least drive out there. a lot is viewable from the car. great views of city / sunsets.
