Durack is an inner-city suburb of Palmerston. It is 22 km SE of the Darwin CBD. Its Local Government Area is the City of Palmerston. Durack is bounded to the north by the Stuart Highway, to the west and south is University Ave and to the east is Roystonea Avenue. The suburb is mostly composed of recent developments during the early 1990s.

The Durack area was left unnamed when Palmerston was divided into suburbs as the area was set aside for a University. When urban development of this area began in 1996, it became necessary to give the area a name. The suburb is named after the Durack family, pastoral pioneers of the Northern Territory and the Kimberleys.
