#26 of 93 in Tours in Darwin
Take a self-guided tour of World War II Oil Storage Tunnels for a glimpse of Darwin's wartime history. The information boards and historic photographs displayed on the walls tell the story of the Japanese bombing of Darwin and construction of these huge tunnels, which were reopened on the 50th anniversary of the bombing. Learn why the tunnels were never used for their intended purpose--storing the oil--and instead served as a training area for the fire brigade throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Our Darwin trip itinerary builder website makes visiting World War II Oil Storage Tunnels and other Darwin attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
