Darwin Recreation Lagoon

National Parks and Reserves

Dive into the saltwater Recreation Lagoon and frolic under its fountain or just float around awhile. Wriggle your toes in the sand, and join throngs of others lounging, under trees and shade structure, at what is probably the Top End’s cutest and safest beach. Mesh screens are in place to prevent marine stingers entering the Lagoon, and there is a stinger net providing more protection on the beach side.

For a swim with swell, buy a ticket for the Wave Lagoon, where the siren signals serious fun: twenty-minute bursts of waves perfect for tubing and boogie boarding, for kids of all ages. open 7 days a week.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
