East Point Science Trail
Directions - From the centre of Darwin take Smith St west until you reach Gilruth Avenue. Take a right here and follow this north as it becomes East Point Rd. At the roundabout turn left to stay on East Point Rd and the car park for the playground is on your right before the monsoon forest begins.
The Walk - After getting a number of trails under my belt during the week in Darwin including a trip out to Litchfield National Park to sample a few of the lovely walks there, I had one last walk on my list. On the day we were scheduled to leave I made plans to visit one of the more intriguing walks I came across in my research of Darwin walks (which is very limited I had to make one up myself). With the website at the time providing less of a trail map and more a link to a Google Maps overlay, it was going to be fun trying to follow the exact route but it seemed like a simple loop. Rather than a follow the trail marker style of trail, it is designed to showcase different aspects of East Point.
