Fannie Bay Gaol Museum

One of Darwin’s most interesting destinations is Fannie Bay Gaol Museum, which served as Darwin’s prison between 1883 and 1979. Located barely 300 metres from the Sailing Club, the gaol housed some of Darwin’s most desperate criminals. The cells and gallows provide a sobering display for visitors, but are sometimes used as a backdrop for dinner parties and social events. East Point Rd; open daily; admission free.
