This is a relatively large park next to the ocean. Plenty of shade and manicured gardens, a good place to walk or jog and good place to see and hear birds. The mangrove walk is excellent. This walk ends in a shady area where you are surrounded by tall mangrove trees. At low tide you have good views of the... More

Forget sunsets everywhere else in Darwin. You'll see the BEST ever sunset here. Great place to sit and have a picnic dinner and a few beers.

Lots to do in this beautiful place - walking, cycling, swimming in crocodile free man-made lake, birdwatching (rainbow pita is here), military museum, WW2 bunkers, sculpture, and sunset watching. Delightful to hang out here.

My walk started on the beach side and followed the track round finishing at the lake. The track is well laid out and the views are tops. Where coastal and bushland meet. You can also swim in the lake and plenty play area for young kids.

We spent about half an hour here enjoying the view - it was completely empty until we left when a van of history buffs rocked up. Would be good for a picnic on a cooler day

First we drove around the whole reserve & checked out Lake Alexander (safe swimming), but it wasn't hot enough for a swim, then we picked a quiet shady place near Fannie Bay Beach to have a picnic - lovely cool place to relax. Would have liked to do the mangrove... More
