  • Perfect way for kids to have lots of fun, and amazingly it's free. Shaded areas for parents to sit, and a playground also for rest between water slides. Just note the big slides are not open all day, ...  more »

  • Great Water Park with lots of fun play for all ages. Extensive water play area, large fenced in Lagoon and three super slides. Great shaded playground as well as a skate park. Cafè/Bistro on site.
  • Really impressed with the facilities here. I remember avoiding the park as a kid because it seemed a bit grotty and horrible. Almost twenty years later I am delighted with this place. The pool looks clean and is a great size for littlies. The splash pad is one of the most creative fun ones I've seen. But the slides?! They are huge, there are three and they're free!!! Minimum height to use is 110cm and there are life guards on duty at the top and bottom of the slides. When you're done there is also a cafe to buy an ice cream or other snacks.
  • Amazing spot. 100% free, including the water slides! The kids had so much fun.
  • Love it.. Looks like the pool has had a resurface, nice and bright and clean.
  • Great place to cool off with your kids!

Where to stay in Darwin

A small but distinctly cosmopolitan city, Darwin offers a surprisingly diverse range of lodgings, with most hotels located in or near the central business district. Despite this, finding a comfortable room during the peak May-to-September season can be extremely difficult, especially if you don't book ahead of your visit. If planning months in advance isn't an option, consider staying at a backpacker hostel or guesthouse outside the city center. Many of these smaller establishments offer access to free Wi-Fi and outdoor swimming pools.
