Falkland Islands Travel - Falkland Attractions: Darwin and Goose Green

Map © Malouines.comDarwin and Goose Green

Darwin settlement retains evidence of the gauchos who once lived there and, together with nearby settlement of Goose Green, many remains of the 1982 conflict.
Named after Charles Darwin, who spent some time here during his travels, the settlement was established in 1859 as a centre for cattle ranching, and later for sheep farming.
History-rich Goose Green is next to Darwin, and became world news when the first land battle between Argentina and the United Kingdom took place there, the night of the 28/29th of May.
Of particular interest in the area are the most southerly suspension bridge in the world at Bodie Creek, the Argentine Cemetery, and various 1982 memorials.
Darwin and Goose Green are an hour and a half drive from Stanley.
