Darwin Waterfront

Entertainment Venues

The footbridge at the end of Smith Street is like a gateway to leisure-land. Alight the elevator at the Darwin Waterfront and enter a world of lush lawns, swimming lagoons and waterside restaurants.

Darwin Waterfront is home to the Wave Pool and also safe swimming Recreation Lagoon.

Darwin Waterfront’s cafes and restaurants offer plenty of opportunities to refuel after a morning swim, linger over a luxurious lunch, or stop for a sundowner. Choose from high-end Mediterranean and Mexican restaurants, to more casual cafes and bars – you’ll never be too far from an ice cream or a barra burger.

Drift along Wharf One’s row of restaurants and shops, by the lagoon, or head further afield to Stokes Hill Wharf, a favourite fishing and fish-and-chip spot and popular starting point for harbour cruises.
