“Always an enjoyable place for a meal”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Sitting eating a meal and enjoying the view and the breezes it really is one of the best spots in Darwin. If you are lucky you can spot the dolphins swimming in the harbour, and quite often during the dry there is live music to enjoy as well

“a relaxing afternoon @ the wharf”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

The Darwin Wharf District is a great place to spend an afternoon. The sand beach & park area for swimming and sunbathing. The wave pool & splash park for family fun. The restaurants are terrific and the food court @ the pier is fantastic. There is plenty of shopping to do.

“What a nice place”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

From here we saw a cruise ship in port. The Waterfront Precinct is made up of the Wave lagoon and kiosk (where you buy entry tickets, and inflatables for the Wave Lagoon. It also sells food and drink ). There's a grassed area, a swim area, a number of hotels and dining options, Access is great with parking for vehicles at the Convention Centre, on the street and nearby. Public transport also services this area.

Nice promenade walkways and Skybridge is great way to access the waterfront from the Parliament House end of town........all accessible for wheelchairs and prams.

The World War II oil tunnels are nearby.

“44 beers on tap....excellent happy hour”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

Great to have a bar that has so many craft beers on tap. The views were amazing, great spot to unwind and relax after a hot day in the top end.
Happy hour is a must if you enjoy your beers. Happy drinking.
