Darwin Harbour
Integrated Report Card

Overall Health Index

Darwin Harbour is currently in good health, yet more can be done to improve and better understand it

Overall, Darwin Harbour and its catchment received a grade of B− in 2021. This grade was comprised of information on eight values, each with variable results. Management of the environment was assessed as being very good. Clean water, and lifestyles and recreation each received a good rating. Moderate grades were given to healthy ecosystems and landscapes, Indigenous values, and jobs. Poor grades were assigned to sustainability and tourism – the latter attributed to impacts due to COVID-19.

Insufficient information was available to confidently assign grades to biodiversity, Port of Darwin, multiculturalism, and resilience and climate change.
