The road was formerly known as Darwin River Road from the Stuart Highway to Tumbling Waters, the road was renamed after construction of bridge over Blackmore River, together with rest of road leading to Cox Peninsula. The Peninsula was named after Matthew Dillon Cox, who is regarded as the Territory's first pastoralist who applied for a lease over the peninsula in 1869, just after the establishment of Palmerston (Darwin). Cox's station / camp was on Talc Head. Cox died in the 1870s. 1
