Old town hall 2

The Old Darwin Town Hall Ruins were originally built in 1883 during the Pine Creek gold rush. This building earlier survived the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese during WWII, only to be eventually destroyed by Cyclone Tracy 30 years later. Heritage listed, the Darwin Town Hall Ruins are all that remain today constructed in 1882.

Nowadays the ruins are used to house theatre performance. It is now one giant room that provides a backdrop for open-air theatre.
