Wave Lagoon at Darwin Waterfront Darwin
Where are we going today?
Darwin’s Wave Lagoon is a safe, stinger and crocodile-free wave and swimming lagoon.
Including the shallow still water area for toddlers, the wave lagoon covers an area of 4,000 square metres and is great fun for every level of swimming ability as there is so much range of self positioning.
The lagoon depth varies from 2 metres at its deepest point with a slope to a depth of zero at the wet edge. The water is chlorinated salt and the lagoon has a concrete bottom.
The wave lagoon is capable of a range of different waves up to 1.7 metres in height. The different wave types provide a range of experiences for all users and ensure the wave lagoon is suitable for the whole family, from boogie board riders to toddlers. Waves run on a cycle with a ten minute break in between.

Great addition to the waterfront seeing as the beach next to it is man-made... Waves are frequent and donuts are at the ready!

Great place to spend the afternoon. The water is cooler in here than in the ocean. Much more refreshing. Well priced too!
