Bill's Reminising!!! There is a steel tower of around 6m on the left. This was the anchor point for the steel submarine nets that stretched right across the harbour to Talc head in WW11. After the war the net was stored near the carpark. One net link was around 300m and you would 'bust a gut' to pick it up. The japese bought it for scrap metal in around 1965. Carl Atkinson was commissioned to remove the ships out of the harbour that was bombed and the net. (Including the 3SQx2m bouys)

 The old  War Musuem East Point

This small but interesting military museum, which displays mainly displays from on the World War 11 including the 'Bombing of Darwin' by the Japanese, is situated in a gun command post at East Point Reserve in Darwin Nothern Territory Australia.
