    Lameroo Beach in Darwin in Northern Territory Australia
    Darwin is the capital city of Northern Territory Australia.
    Lameroo Beach: Lameroo Beach is neastled against the cliffs along the Esplanade near Government House in Darwin's CBD. The nearby Lameroo Beach has long been a popular camping, fishing and swimming spot for the Larrakia and other residents of Darwin and was the location of the once popular all-season swimming baths. Lameroo beach is nestled at the bottom of the Esplanade cliffs. very dangerous near the edge -gho there with caution and not alone.The baths were built to keep out crocodiles, but were less effective at excluding box jellyfish, which caused a number of deaths to bathers. The baths fell into disrepair during the 1950s. During the 1970s Lameroo Beach was home to a large hippy commune until Cyclone Tracy wreaked havoc and destroyed the site in 1974.
