Christmas at the Waterfront

Festivals and Celebrations

3 Dec 2020 to 31 Dec 2020 Daily Event

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

See the Christmas Wonderland light up the Waterfront.

Christmas at the Waterfront will launch with a Community Christmas Carols Concert hosted by Mel Little, and featuring performances from local schools, community groups and the Starlight Foundation, who will be fundraising on the evening. Join in the magic of Christmas as Santa counts down to the lighting of the Darwin Waterfront Christmas Decorations to conclude the concert event.

Santa will be coming from the North Pole to visit his magical grotto next to Surf Dive n Ski. Get your photo taken with Santa and receive a digital copy to share with family and friends.

Capture your Christmas moment at our new Christmas Bauble archway, and marvel at the illuminated baubles floating in the Recreation Lagoon. Your favourites return with the giant Gingerbread House, illuminated bauble, Santa’s sleigh and more located throughout the Parklands.

Follow on Instagram and Facebook to participate in the 12 Days of Christmas giveaways competition, featuring prizes from restaurants, attractions and more at Darwin Waterfront and Stokes Hill Wharf.
