Attraction details
Owner description: One of the Waterfront's coolest attractions is the Wave Lagoon: a palm-fringed swimming pool that turns into a tube-riding, boogie-boarding bucket of fun when the waves roll in every 20 minutes. The fully patrolled Wave Lagoon is two metres at its deepest point and slopes to a shallow area of still water, perfect for families. Bring your book: there are plenty of banana lounges, beach umbrellas and shady patches of lawn. Aqua Zumba classes every Sunday from 9am are a HUGE hit with tourists and locals alike.

“Family Fun”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

A great place to take the kids or Grandchildren. Safe and LOTS of fun for everyone. Plenty of shade and what a beautiful setting at the Water front. This is a place for everyone from babies to adults. If your not having fun then you don't belong there, stay away so you don't upset the rest of us.

“Great day with kids”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We went here on New Years Eve and arrived around 330 to beat any crowds. It was a great time of day to come as it wasn't very crowded at all and the price is so affordable.

“Great idea”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The same price as hiring a sun lounger and you get a nice pool that produces body boardable waves from time to time. Pleasant grassed areas with palm trees. Get wrist bands from the kiosk before going to the entry gate.

“One of the only safe swimming spots in Darwin.”
Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Good for all ages. Gets VERY busy in the dry season. Life savers on hand so generally pretty safe. Inflatable donuts and boards are a plenty. Considering this may be the only 'safe' swimming hole this side of Litchfield Park it's worth a look at.
