Darwin Waterfront Precint
The Darwin Waterfront Precint, a scenic waterfront area full of options for dining and play, exists thanks to an initiative by the city of Darwin that turned 61 acres of industrial wasteland into a thriving center for the city.

The area includes the Stokes Hill Wharf, a historical site that was constructed in the early 1800s by Darwin’s first European settlers and bore much damage from the 1942 air raid upon the city during World War II. These days, the wharf is home to a much livelier atmosphere. Award-winning dining, entertainment, shopping and outdoor attractions have helped transform the wharf precinct into one of the most celebrated parts of Darwin.

The wharf is connected to Darwin’s Central Business District by a dedicated walkway lined with parks, tropical landscaping and, of course, the waterfront itself. The lifeguard-patrolled swimming lagoons make for a great daytime spot to splash around, and the Indo Pacific Marine lets visitors get up close and personal to the coral ecosystems of the area. 

There is a wealth of shopping and pampering opportunities at the wharf – a surf shop, a boutique gift store, a luxury hair salon and a day spa are just some of the offerings. Visitors shouldn’t pass up a stop at the StormBird Gallery, where stunning nature photography by local Jacci Ingham is on display. Restaurants along the promenade range from a traditional Irish pub and a tapas lounge to a Greek restaurant and an open-til-late gelato shop. Come nightfall, the deckchair cinema serves guests from its kiosk as viewers settle in to watch the nightly film at 7:30 p.m.

Tropical Light Unplugged Twilight CruiseSunset Cruises

Tropical Light Unplugged Twilight Cruise

Awaken your senses with this Tropical Light experience and start your evening in Darwin with Mother Nature’s best light show. This is tropical light unplugged, a short sunset and twilight cruise on Darwin Harbour during the tropical summer when the sky is stretched with colour catching storm clouds, multi-hued sunsets and a peppering of electrical light shows. After sunset on the open harbour, twilight will be enjoyed with a stunning city backdrop in a place where trees are in the sea. When twilight fades the return to Kitchener Bay is greeted with a stunning exhibition of plugged Tropical Light, as the Darwin Waterfront seawall is transformed with Bruce Munro’s Water Tower sculptures. These towers of stacked recyclable water bottles are illuminated by optical fibre, like enormous liquid batteries of light. Disembark in a perfect location for a self-guided stroll through the waterfront precinct to the city to experience the complete Bruce Munro Tropical Light exhibition.
