Gunn Point is believed to be named after Lieut. Gordon S Gunn an officer on ‘HMS Flying Fish’ which in July 1886, under the command of Capt. JP Maclear, RN, charted the Clarence Strait. During the WW2 defence of Darwin, Gunn Point had the code name ‘Cannon’.

Formerly part of Koolpinyah Station, approximately 90% of Gunn Point Peninsula is held by the Northern Territory Land Corporation as a Crown Lease in Perpetuity. Murrumujuk Beach and adjacent areas are maintained as private land available for public use. The name Murrumujuk is of Aboriginal origin and relates to whale dreaming.

Gunn Point Peninsula is available for the public to enjoy and visitors are asked to be mindful of their impact on the area’s natural environment. Conditions of use have been designed to ensure the safety of all visitors and stakeholders.

This is not the campsite. The camp is further south (... see listing for further information).
