Fannie Bay hotels
Fannie Bay Gaol
Easily one of Darwin, Australia’s most fascinating and popular holidaymaker attractions is the historic prison of Fannie Bay Gaol, which opened in 1882 and once hosted some of the country’s most dangerous criminals until 1979, when the detention centre officially closed. Self-guided tours are available for visitors hoping to explore this labyrinthine structure at their own pace. A famously compelling experience for visitors of all ages, a Fannie Bay Gaol tour provides one-of-a-kind insights into a kind of lifestyle few on earth have ever faced. This facility’s extensive interior chambers, including the original kitchen, cell blocks, aboriginal prisoner section, infirmary, and watchtower are still in top-notch shape, making this incredible attraction a genuine blast from the past.
- Visit the Darwin Botanic Gardens, which is easily accessible from the Fannie Bay Gaol, and features some of the most stunning marine life anywhere in the country.
- Spend an afternoon at Darwin’s Museum and Art Gallery at the Northern Territory, a museum and art gallery featuring stunning collections of aboriginal art, maritime archaeology, oceanic art, and Southeast Asian pieces.
- Enjoy great eats at the popular Darwin restaurant known as the Blue Marlin Bistro, which features five-star authentic seafood and unspeakably delicious pepperberry pork ribs.
Visitors arriving by plane should fly into the Darwin International Airport. From there, travellers can access Fannie Bay Gaol via shuttle buses or abundantly available rental car providers and taxis surrounding this transport hub. Holidaymakers can also reach this inimitable destination via the local ferry system. The greyhound bus system likewise offers transit throughout the region, and from Fannie Bay, several transit options exist, though the area is also easy to navigate simply on foot or via widely available rental bicycles.
