Located beneath the Darwin Wharf Precinct is a fascinating relic from World War II: tunnels built to protect oil from Japanese air raids, which killed more than 245 people during the Bombing of Darwin. The tunnels were reopened in 1992 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the bombing, and new interpretive boards were added in 2015 to correspond with the centennial of the World War I landing of ANZAC troupes in Gallipoli.

Travelers can do a self-guided tunnel tour or visit the site as part of such experiences as the five-hour Tour of Darwin and Battle of Australia tour.
