As with all the Australian war cemeteries, this one is beautifully maintained. It's not huge, but a little different in that it has a second section for civilians who were killed in the bombing of Darwin in World War II. A lovely, tranquil place to...More

Had a fleeting visit, but long enough to appreciate the site. Well maintained, Interesting that a place so far from Darwin was integral in the recovery effort. Will spend a day or so in the area on a return visit.

It was a long drive to the War Cemetery but it was definitely worth it. It was very well maintained and there's a short video nearby on the bombing of Darwin and has boards explaining the history of the place. Definitely a place to see.

We never heard anything about Darwin being bombed during our schooling. You think that would have been important. Over 230 people killed. Also the aborigines played their part yet they still got got treated like they were second rate. Cemetery beautifully maintained. A credit to...More
