In the heart of Darwin’s central business district you will find the Esplanade which runs through Bicentennial Park and is the home of several walking paths.
The Esplanade is also the the location of Darwin’s Cenotaph War Memorial and a Civilian Memorial where every year on Anzac much of Darwin gathers to honour Australia’s involvement in conflicts in the past and currently.
The Esplanade is a popular walking and running route and all the way along there are lovely views along the coastline.
Every Saturday morning at 7am Darwin Parkrun hold a 5km park run event for free.
A short walk away you will find cafes and restaurants as well as a variety of shops which are worth checking out.
