Borroloola was once a major river port and drovers camp at the oldest surviving example of a Northern Territory outpost station.
Visit the Borroloola Police Station Museum for a fascinating insight into the local history. The police station was constructed in 1886 when Borroloola was a significant river port and drovers' camp.
The buildings were used for 50 years by the police before becoming a patrol officer's residence. It is the oldest surviving example of an outpost station in the Northern Territory.
The building now houses a small district museum, which tells many stories of occupation, administration and mining in the Gulf region. The museum is open to the public from May to September each year.
