Wave Lagoon, Darwin

(900+ reviews on the web)
Water Park
When stinging jellyfish populate the waters around Darwin, head for Wave Lagoon. Free of stingers and crocodiles, this wave-pool and swimming lagoon provide a safe place to cool off in the heat. The lagoon reaches a maximum depth of 2 m (6.5 ft), and the waves in the wave-pool climb to 1.7 m (5.6 ft). Catch the waves that suit you; wave intensity varies throughout each cycle. The wet season brings frequent storms from October to May, and lifeguards move visitors to sheltered areas when thunder and lighting are imminent. Leave extra time to wait for the usually brief outbursts to pass if you visit during this period. Make Wave Lagoon part of your personalized Darwin itinerary using our Darwin vacation generator.

  • A wonderful place to be cooled down without having to think of jellyfish and crocodiles – I travel around with children on 10, 12 and 14 years and spent 5 hours in the waves, would definitely recommend this place for families it needs to "pull the plug" a day or so and just enjoy a dip and the kids that will be enabled:)

  • The Darwin Wave Pool is a great setting for families and also individuals who enjoy a beach setting without the actual beach. The waves are very realistic and the beach is great for children and older...  more »
