Fannie Bay History and Heritage Society
Information: Fannie Bay was the site of the landing of the first overseas flight in to Australia on 10 December 1919. It was the flight that changed the world by proving that air travel was a viable alternative to land based transport. Each year the Society conducts a commemoration in conjunction with Darwin High School and Parap Primary School, at the Ross & Keith Smith memorial on East Point Road. About 100 people attend and VIPs have included the Administrator of the NT, the Lord Mayor, Defence Force Chiefs and the Indonesian Consul. A soiree is held in the evening, with a ‘floor talk’ on a related subject. This event is often held in conjunction with the NT Library, which arranges a special photographic and memorabilia exhibition. The Society also conducts a weekly ‘History Mystery Tour’ of the area during the month of August as our contribution to the NT Government’s Seniors’ Month Program.
