Adelaide River War Cemetery Jan 08, 2017
Approximately 113km south of Darwin on the Stuart Highway you will find Adelaide River. During World War II, there was a large base at Adelaide River and the war cemetery was created specifically for the burial of service personnel who died in the area.

The Adelaide River War Cemetery contains 434 Commonwealth graves from the Second World War, as well as the Northern Territory Memorial which commemorates members of the Australian Army, the Royal Australian Air Force, the Australian Merchant Navy and the Services Reconnaissance Department who lost their lives in operations in Timor and Northern Australian. The memorial also serves those who have no known grace.

The war cemetery was taken over the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) in 1947.
