    Dameo Ra Walk Path in CBD Darwin in Northern Territory Australia

    In Darwin a commemorative Pathway has been created in Damoe-Ra Park, which is situated on the Esplanade opposite Parliament House and leads down to the Deck Chair Cinema. Damoe-Ra Park is a fitting venue for the Tribute pathway. It was a central and essential site for the traditional inhabitants, the Larrakia people, and the early European settlers. Damoe-Ra was named by Larrakia elder Topsy Secretary, referring to a natural spring located a little further north, on Lameroo Beach. In 1992 it was chosen as the site to commemorate the significant role women have played in the Northern Territory. Territory women artists are responsible for the design and development of all Tribute features.

    On July 6th, 2004 the mosaic pathway in Damoe-Ra Park which commemorates the historical contribution of women in the Northern Territory was opened. The unique pathway, which will be revealed during a Picnic in the Park, recognises the 21 recipients of the Tribute to Territory Women.

    There is clear signage for this path from the Esplanade and from the Deckcahir Cinema. It's rather hard to get lost.

    This staging area and information dipaly is around 200 metres from gevernment house and opposite the Admistrator's offical offices on the Esplanade.

    Most folks this the Esplanade finishes as it rounds the bend to met up at Mitchell Street but there is a 1 klm lenght continueing alongside Parliament House that you really should walk or drive along.

    Damoe-Ra pathway is situated on the Esplanade opposite (virtually behind) Parliament House and a few metres down from Government House and leads down to the Darwin Deck Chair Cinema.

    Walking from the Smith Street Mall to the Deckchair Cinema then take the Damoe Ra walkway from the Esplanade.

    Recently upgraded, this route is direct and well lit with harbour views!

    Safety - Late at night always walk with a friend anywhere.
