Youth Justice Centre

About the project

Northern Territory Government is working to deliver a fit for purpose, contemporary and secure rehabilitation precinct in Darwin. The proposed site for the rehabilitation precinct is Lot 67, Hundred of Bagot, Pinelands.

It is proposed that the new precinct would include a new youth justice centre and an alcohol rehabilitation centre. The youth justice centre would replace the previously planned centre at the former Don Dale Youth Detention Centre at Berrimah.

The site at Pinelands would be accessed from an extension of McKinnon Road and is bordered by Tiger Brennan Drive. There would be no access to the facility from Tiger Brennan Drive. This site is located in proximity to current public transport services and will allow connections with services to be implemented, facilitating access for youth stakeholders.
