World War II Oil Storage Tunnels

Follow the stairs from the Survivors Lookout down to these tunnels, hidden beneath the cliffs. They were built to keep oil safe from air attacks during World War II, but as water leaked in, they were never used. The eerie tunnels now house photos of life in Darwin during World War II.
