Darwin Wharf Precinct, Darwin

(4/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
The renovated Darwin Wharf Precinct now includes a large convention and exhibition center, retail and entertainment outlets, a large wave pool, and a protected lagoon, which extends into the harbor and provides several spots for safe swimming and relaxing in the sun. This district is located just 5 minutes from the city center, but you can easily reach it by bus or car from any other part of town. The neighborhood is known for its many restaurants with outdoor seating and numerous kiosks selling cold beer. The harbor stays busy with passing ships and visitors from around the world. In the early morning, watch the sun rising over the wharf's calm waters. Add Darwin Wharf Precinct and other attractions to your Darwin trip itinerary using our Darwin vacation route planner.
