History Driver is an inner-city suburb of Palmerston. It is 23 km SE of the Darwin CBD. Its Local Government Area is the City of Palmerston. Durack is bounded to the north by University Ave, to the west Elrundie Avenue, to the east Temple Terrace and to the south Tilston Avenue. The suburb is mostly composed of developments from the early 1980s. Arthur Driver, an engineer from Western Australia was appointed as the Administrator of the Northern Territory in 1946. The highlights of his five-year term include the rescue in 1947 of Bas Wie, a stowaway arrival from Indonesia and his term as the first President of the Legislative Council which began in 1948. By this time, Driver had embarked on the decentralisation process of establishing Elliott as the focal point between Darwin and Alice Springs. Fry Court in Driver was named after Mr Charles Fry, a teamster who arrived with George Goyder's survey expedition in 1869 to found the colony of Port Darwin. His wife and family arrived with the first European women in January 1870.
