Casuarina Beach is one of the most popular in Darwin, extending from Rapid Creek through Casuarina to Lee Point.
Except for the very high spring tides, the beach is a wide expanse of white sand, a great place to walk the dog, go for a run or just enjoy the evening breeze and setting sun. It’s easy to find, simply drive along to the end of Trower Rd.
The occasional crocodile is spotted here too, so be vigilant. Crocodile traps are set to remove them from the area, but there is always the chance one will be passing by. At high tide the water washes half way up these sandstone cliffs (left). 8 metre tides ensure the beach is never quite the same each time you visit.
