Suburbs of Darwin Australia

Alawa is located next to the popular Casuarina Shopping Square, close to Charles Darwin University, Casuarina Beach and Rapid Creek Parks and bike tracks.

Alawa Parklands & Sports FieldsAlawa Parklands & Sports Fields

Three Boab trees stand sentinel in the park lands across Lakeside Drive in Alawa. These trees are native to the north west of Australia and grow massive thick trunks over many years.

The parks separate the residential areas from the tidal mangrove systems of Rapid Creek which runs into the sea nearby.

The University is a five minute walk away, across these Parks.
