Darwin Waterfront Recreation Lagoon

National Parks and Reserves

Dive into the saltwater Recreation Lagoon and embrace the tropical lifestyle of the Top End. Entry is free and the lagoon is patrolled daily by lifeguards.

Wriggle your toes in the sand, get active with Aqua Park or at the Beach Volleyball Court, or relax and lounge on the grasslands or in the Waterfront Beach Club (live during the Dry Season).

The Darwin Waterfront Corporation now provides a beach ramp to help with accessibility. Please ask the lifeguards on duty for access.
