What is there to do?

The Darwin Waterfront is a new, fresh destination for all families who want to relax, cool off with a swim, and enjoy time as a family, whether strolling in the sun or enjoying a family picnic!

One of the experiences you can enjoy at the Darwin Waterfront is the Wave Lagoon. This is a safe, stringer and croc-free wave and swimming lagoon perfect for the kids!

As well as 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.

Waves run on a cycle with a ten minute break in between, and it really will feel like you are in the ocean!
