Quarantine Anti-Aircraft Battery

About 36 km from Darwin City, Quarantine Battery is the most complete anti-aircraft gun-site within the Darwin area. It is comprised of a command post with four gun emplacements, and in World War II was responsible for protecting the southern section of Darwin Harbour. The substantial remains of the battery are located at the junction of Berrimah Road and Casey Street, near East Arm. It is a fascinating place to explore.
