Darwin Waterfront

Entertainment Venues

The Darwin Waterfront is in the heart of Darwin’s CBD just walking distance from Smith Street Mall and the Esplanade. Experience the best of Darwin’s tropical lifestyle with lush parklands, a man-made beach along the saltwater recreation lagoon, and Darwin’s most popular attraction, the Wave Lagoon.

Dine on around the world cuisine as you 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 cocktail!

Experience Darwin’s multicultural and vibrant community with a year-round program of activities, festivals and events.

Explore Stokes Hill Wharf, a favourite fishing and fish-and-chip spot and popular starting point for harbour cruises where you can experience the best of Darwin Harbour aboard sunset cruises, fishing tours or 00Seven Jet Ski Adventures.

There’s so much to love at Darwin Waterfront.
