By far the best beach area in Darwin, great spot to either walk the beach or laze under the tree's in the park area whilst the kids play. Clean toilets, bbq's and plenty of parking.

One of the best places Darwin has to offer. East point has some incredible sun set views and so many places to stop and enjoy the view! This is a great place to visit whether it be, a sunset dinner, morning walk or afternoon jog!

East Point has a lot of military and social history and excellent bike paths. Can be a long ride from the city but well worth the visit.
