“Great Waves all day long....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

The Wave Lagoon is just great for all the family. Plenty of room around the outside to lay back and relax, whilst the kids have a ball swimming in the wave pool. The waves machine runs quite regularly, with around 20 minutes on and a 10 minute break in between. The waves are great and suitable for all ages. They supply boards and other floating rings as well, free of charge. The cost is reasonable to get in, I think around $17AUS for a family, or $7AUS for an adult.
Close to shops and amenities, so you can eat close by, right near the Darwin Waterfront. We had dinner on the Waterfront after spending an afternoon swimming. Certainly a place to go if you are in Darwin..

“Refreshing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

Just perfect, Darwin is so hot and you can not swim at the beaches so it was great to have somewhere to go and cool down.

Never swam this time as wasn't a swimming holiday but a definite next time. Great for kids, young and old. Plenty of soft green lawn to lay on.

“Awesome Afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

I never expected this, a Wave pool right in the heart of Darwin, the amazing views and safe area make it a great place to stop for an afternoon of activities.

The onsite life guards are courteous and make sure everyone has a great time.

Loved it

“exhausting afternoon of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

the waves last a good 20 minutes each go.
excellent fun for the big kids amongst us (let alone the children).
The free use of giant inflatable ring floats and noodles was great - it was just a pity that some people tried to hog them.
At $7 for an adult for the whole day - this was great value for money. Even better was the family ticket (2 adults + 3 children) for $18
