The Rum Jungle area is located 65 kilometres south of Darwin and 8 km north of Batchelor.

In 1871 a bullock wagon delivering barrels of rum to construction gangs became bogged in jungle terrain near the head waters of the Finnis River. They proceeded to drink the rum in a week long party until they were rescued. The area became known as Rum Jungle.

In 1869, a government surveyor, George Goyder came across a green mineral in the area and noted it in his logbook, but the specimen remained unidentified. It wasn't until the 11th August 1949, when local prospector, Jack White, rediscovered the location, and identified the minerals to be torbernite. It was the first uranium discovery in the Northern Territory, and Jack was given a $50,000 ($760,000 in 2009 dollars)reward for his efforts by the Australian Government.
The Commonwealth Government took control of the region in "National Interest" and made it a restricted area.

Uranium mining commenced in 1953 and finished in 1971.
