Flagstaff Park Development Proposal

Flagstaff Park (Lot 5180, Town of Darwin) is the public park (zoned PS- Public Open Space) on the top of the end of Myilly Point. It has l panoramic views of the Darwin Harbour, and is of history and heritage significance. The old 'gardens' are a remnant of Flagstaff House, which was a Vice Regal home, until destroyed by Cyclone Tracy in 1974.

This park was publicly dedicated by Chief Minister Clare Martin to the people of Darwin in 2001.


The park is now threatened by insensitive development proposal. Paspaley Pearls Properties interests are bidding for the proposed 'Six star Hotel'. Theirs is the reclaimed land below on Lot 6394, Town of Darwin. Some plans include building a tower hotel blocking the Flagstaff park views and sunsets, and reducing our park to entrance and carpark.

Do you think this park should be saved for the people of Darwin? Please feel free to make comments on our Facebook page
