A formal roadside memorial cross dedicated to policeman Glen Huitson who was shot and killed while on duty.

Huitson, 38, was shot dead at a roadblock at the intersection of Stuart Highway and Old Bynoe Road, Acacia, 55 kilometres south of Darwin in 1999. After an hour-long shooting rampage, gunman Rodney William Ansell - said to be the man on whom Paul Hogan's Crocodile Dundee character was based - shot Huitson in his side. A gun battle followed in which Ansell, 44, was shot dead by Huitson's partner, Constable Jamie O'Brien. Huitson died in the Royal Darwin Hospital an hour later.
