Join celebrations for Navy Week in the Northern Territory at this not-to-be-missed community event this August.

Bring the family to Darwin city at 10am on Saturday 10 August to cheer on HMAS Coonawarra as more than 100 Officers and Sailors march on Knuckey Street to exercise their Freedom of Entry.

This important tradition began in medieval times when a city would show its trust in a group of men-at-arms by allowing them to enter their walls without being disarmed.

This event is part of Navy Week in the NT, which runs from 5-10 August and thanks the NT community for its ongoing support to our Officers and Sailors.
