Northern Territory GiovernmentDefence of Darwin Experience

About Us

The Defence of Darwin Experience is managed by the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory and is supported by the Royal Australian Artillery Association (NT) (RAAA)

The Defence of Darwin Experience is located next to the Darwin Military Museum and has joined with it to form the Darwin Military Museum Precinct.  Visitors arriving at the Precinct can enter through the Defence of Darwin Experience and move through it to view the grounds and exhibitions of the Darwin Military Museum.

The Defence of Darwin Experience facility at East Point comprises exhibitions that feature objects, images and interactive multimedia installations.

As a hub for a range of military heritage experiences, visitors can download a smartphone app offering self guided tours to unique World War II sites across the greater Darwin area. The app can be downloaded through the free wifi portal at the Defence of Darwin Experience facility, or access it prior through the link on the Defence of Darwin Experience website at Military Heritage Sites.
