Welcome to Rapid Creek Landcare Group


The Rapid Creek Landcare Group acknowledges the Larrakia people as traditional owners and custodians of Gurambai.  Gurambai is the Larrakia name for Rapid Creek and means elbow, referring to the shape of the creek at the saltwater end, towards the mouth of the creek.  Larrakia people know that long time Darwin residents also call this creek ‘Freshwater’, the Larrakia name for all freshwater is Karoewa.

Rapid Creek

Found in Darwin’s northern suburbs, Rapid Creek forms the only significant freshwater system in Darwin’s urban area and it is a valuable community asset.
