Roadmasters House Exhibition
Roadmasters House is a heritage listed building managed by the National Trust that was built circa 1920s by the former North Australia Railway for staff accommodation.
It is the only surviving house in Darwin which features a central area enclosed by a veranda with slatted walls and push-out shutters – a typical design of the pre-war era.
The building houses a small museum of Darwin history. The current exhibition is entitled The Overland Telegraph, The Railway and Old Darwin and tells the story of these themes through a collection of historic photographs, maps, and artefacts.
The museum will be open 10.00 am to 1.00 pm every day through the festival from 23 April to 14 May except Mondays.
After the festival the museum will resume normal opening hours of 10.00 am to 1.00 pm every day except Mondays and Saturdays.
Entry is free but donations are appreciated.
