- This is a free attraction where you can pay a donation. You are greeted and given instructions to download the audio tour which brought the Gaol to life for a visitor. I think we spent about 1 - 1 1/2 hours there in the end listening to the audio tour, history and personal stories. Take your air phones!Written 20 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- The old Star Theatre site is now some little boutique shops and cafes. They close early on weekdays. There is a little bit of signage inside about the old theatre that was destroyed in Cyclone Tracy in 1974. It's tucked away in the mall, I had walked past several times before I even noticed it.Written 1 October 2019
- A colleague ad I carried out the original fauna surveys of Mantom Dam in the 1980s and we spotted what appeared to be estuarine crocodiles in the pools left after the dam had been drained. However, their presence was not acknowledged for years. I advise against swimming.Written 15 March 2023
- We passed this airstrip on the way home to Darwin. I saw the signs as we were driving but was knocked back a little when we saw some ímitation' planes on the runway. It took my mind into the situation Australia was in way back in WWII. There was another airplane strip a bit further north. They both still look like they are suitable for landing.Written 13 October 2020
- Our visit to Survivors' Lookout was a great way to read about some of the history of the Darwin Harbour area. The information boards in the area create an interesting time line to follow. It is a pity that the vegetation has been allowed to grow in front of the viewing platform so the view is very patchy. Having said this it should not discourage visitors from going and checking it out.Written 9 October 2020
- Nothing really to see (just the remnants of two walls that survived the destruction of Cyclone Tracy in 1974). No need to go out of your way to see, but if in the area, have a quick look. The history of the building is interesing.Written 29 September 2023
