Lake Alexander, Darwin

(4.2/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
The man-made Lake Alexander sits languorously amid trees and lush grassland, giving it a laid-back, picturesque air. Officially opened in 1991, the lake was named after Alec Fong Lim, a former Mayor of Darwin. The water is filtered, meaning that dangerous marine predators are usually not to be found in the lake. Using our online itinerary creator, Darwin attractions like Lake Alexander can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • You can swim there but i wouldnt do this. Its a hot and salty soup. Go to the Wave Lagoon at the Convention Centre Darwin. Here you have 2 pools, 1 free and 1 with a few dollars entry but with wave simulator/wave pool
