Remembering Kahlin Compound

Kahlin CompundNorthern Territory Library, Parliament House

Kahlin Aboriginal Compound existed at Myilly Point for nearly twenty-five years. Darwin’s Aboriginal workforce and their families were required by law to live there. Stolen Generations policies of the day also saw children of mixed descent removed to Kahlin. Photographs and oral accounts tell the incredible story of Kahlin Compound – a story that is fundamental to understanding Darwin, past, present and future.

Free and open to the public.
