Suburb Overview

Parap is an inner suburb of the city of Darwin, NT, Australia.

Parap derived its name from that applied by Dr John A Gilruth, first Commonwealth Administrator in 1912. He applied the name Paraparap, but had to abbreviate it to Parap later during his term. Parap was also the staging point to the event known as the Darwin Rebellion, on 17 December 1918, in protest against Gilruth's administration.

Parap became well known as the 2

In 1919, when the England to Australia air race was announced, Darwin airport was established in the suburb of Parap to act as the Australian Terminal. Darwin hence operated two airports, a civilian airport and a military field. In 1945, the Department of Aviation made the existing Darwin military airfield available for civil aviation purposes. As a result, the civilian airport at Parap was closed down and airport operations combined with the military airport.

The London-Australia Air Race was actually a means of returning Australian Flying Corps pilots and crews to Australia after the cessation of hostilities

Parap is well known for its streets being named after early Australian aviators and explorers including;Ross Smith Avenue, Hudson Fysh Avenue, Leichhardt Crescent and Gregory Street.

Parap is a predominantly residential suburb and is usually associated with its sister suburb, Fannie Bay and the adjacent inner suburbs of Ludmilla and Stuart Park.

Price Street in Parap was named after Mr Edward W. Price, Magistrate and Commissioner Circuit Court of the NT from 1873 to 1876 and Government Resident of the NT from 1876 to 1883. Mr Price lost his wife and six children on the ill-fated SS Gothenburg, which sank off the north Queensland coast, after hitting the Great Barrier Reef on 24 February 1875.

The Parap Village Market is one of Darwin's longest running markets, and is considered by many as the ideal meeting place to meet or to have breakfast or light meals.

This multi-cultural market place is well known for its diverse food styles, arts and crafts and its busy but relaxed atmosphere. Parap Markets encourage local arts and craftspeople. Situated in the Parap Village Shopping Precinct off Parap Road, the market operates every Saturday of the year between 8am - 2pm.

Parking has recently increased and a car park on Parap Road is available for a gold coin donation. Toilet facilities are available.
