Darwin Bowls and Social Club invites you come down and enjoy the ‘Old Darwin’ ambience and hospitality.

The Darwin Bowls and Social Club (Inc) was formed in 1959, and originally the bowling surface was shredded rubber!

The clubhouse and greens were lucky survivors of Cyclone Tracy on Xmas eve 1974.

Over the years grass greens were installed and the club up until recently has had two turf greens. Work has begun to transform the greens with the front green converted to synthetic grass. In April 2016 a large cover will be built over the Rex Eddy Green (back green) followed by the installation of a second synthetic green.

The additional links on this page will give you detailed information on the corporate structure of the club, details of our valuable sponsors and our contact details.

Construction is on track for our new Cover and surface

Lightweight Structures have completed construction with minor works around the structure to be completed.
