Dinah Beach Cruising Yacht Association


DBCYA is a quirky working club providing DIY facilities for cruising yachts people, but they also boast a truly authentic, old-school open-air bar overlooking the inner harbour for locals and visitors alike.

Popular eatery Rachael’s Seafood Shack and Bistro operates from the club premises serving fresh, local sourced seafood plus a generous Aussie a-la-carte menu.

There’s live music every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and the bar and kitchen are open Mon – Thurs from 3pm and Fri – Sun from Midday.

There’s no gambling facilities whatsoever, just a fantastic rustic ambiance to encourage social connection with known friends and new. Visitors are welcome, please sign the guest register upon arrival.

We are just 3 minutes drive down Tiger Brennan Drive from the Darwin CBD.
