About Rapid Creek
Rapid Creek in flood during the wet season in Darwin. Rapid Creek is fed from the storm water drains in and around Darwin airport and can have flash flooding events in the case of a large rain event. The creek discharges between Nightcliff and Casuarina beaches and because it is a short creek is heavily influenced by the tides which can hold the water back in the system. Too much water hides the impressive root systems that hold the banks together so waiting for the water to fall is a the best option.
