Information

Sattler Airstrip is just 3 Klm North from the Arnhem Hwy Turnoff.
On 2 April 1942 a Japanese reconnaissance aircraft reported the construction of a new airfield 32 Klms south of Darwin beside the Daly Waters to Darwin track. Later that same day the new Sattler RAAF airfield was bombed by the Japanese. There was minimal damage. There were no Allied planes at the base as it was still under construction
