"Clean and green"

Gunn is a suburb of the satellite city of Palmerston, located about 25 minutes drive from Darwin CBD. The Palmerston City Council do a excellent job of landscaping the verges, parks and keeping these public areas looking clean and green.
Pros
  • Clean, green, quiet
  • A safe suburb
  • Well-maintained gardens, parks and public areas
Cons
  • As with all of Darwin and the NT, it's very expensive to live here
  • Rents and house prices were exhorbantant but are currently experiencing a rapid downturn

"Darwin Satellite Town"

Palmerston was the original name for the largest city in the Northern Territory, but it was renamed Darwin after Charles Darwin. When a new housing district was established south east of the city along the Stuart Highway, it was named Palmerston. This area is popular with residents who commute to both Darwin, or take the drive to Kakadu National Park for employment. There are several suburbs within Palmerston, with varying levels of comfort and care. There is a well resourced shopping centre that caters to the needs of both residents and travellers.
