Rapid Creek landscape

In this unique walkshop (walking workshop), participants will be guided by a Larrakia elder and experts in the military and environmental history of Rapid Creek, to reflect on how multiple histories, actions and events have shaped Rapid Creek. The topics covered will include Indigenous histories of Gurambai before and after colonisation, the piecemeal cumulative impacts of ‘development’ on the Rapid Creek catchment, the caring labour of people in Darwin who work to conserve what remains, and the everyday militarisms infiltrating Rapid Creek. Be prepared to have your perspectives challenged about this most beloved place.

Presented by TopEndSTS (Science and Technology Studies) as part of the Encountering Gurambai/Rapid Creek event series.

Directions: Drive towards the airport on Henry Wrigley Drive and turn left onto Sir Norman Brearley Drive between Mercure Airport Resort and Novotel Airport Hotel. The walk will commence at 5 pm sharp from the car park.
Recommended: Be prepared to walk for approximately 1-2km (easy walk). Most of the trail is gravel, and there is a boardwalk section at ground level. Bring water to drink, and mozzie spray and/or wear long sleeves and pants.
