Tree Point Conservation Area

Located on the fringe of Darwin, Tree Point Conservation Area is a quiet and secluded spot known for good fishing and walks on the beach. 

At certain times of the year you can share the sand with migratory birds. 

Tree Point is a great place to enjoy a picnic or glass of bubbly at sunset with sweeping views of Darwin's northern beaches. 

You should not swim in this area due to saltwater crocodiles and box jellyfish. 

Camping is not permitted.
