Tree of KnowledgePrint Page
The Tree of Knowledge was originally located outside the Terminus Hotel on Cavenagh Street north of the junction with The Esplanade.
The Tree provided a meeting place and mailing address outside the Hotel and in close proximity to the Wharf and the Railway Station. The Tree was a focal point within the Chinese commercial and residential area on Cavenagh Street until the bombing of Darwin and subsequent evacuation in 1942.
During the late 1960s and early 1970s the Darwin community showed the value they placed on this tree and successfully campaigned to save the tree and have it incorporated into the Darwin Civic Centre complex.
