Darwin Waterfront Precint Tours and Activities

star-5
387 Reviews

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 Sundowner Cruise with Drinks Included

Tropical Light Sundowner Cruise with Drinks Included

star-5
1
This cruise is a magical way to beGIN your evening in Darwin. This short one hour sunset soiree combines the setting of the tropical sun with the instant relaxation that comes with a sundowner. With a boutique Top End gin in your hand, you will unwind as a purr of the motors take you past a coastline holding secrets of times gone by to find a saltwater spot where you will see the dazzling rays of the sun as it dips to the horizon. Then, with ice cubes clinking in a glistening glass reflecting the colour palette of the sunset, a sense of relaxation will take over as Darwin Harbour unfolds before you during twilight time. On this cruise you’ll taste some flavoursome Top End gin - a wonderful aperitif before stepping ashore where your evening continues. Perhaps relaxed seafood flavours on Stokes Hill Wharf, or maybe a scrumptious dinner and gin cocktail at any one of the myriad of Darwin Waterfront Restaurants. The choice is yours!

Gourmet Lunch Tour in Darwin Sundays 3-Hours

Gourmet Lunch Tour in Darwin Sundays 3-Hours

star-4.5

Our Sunday tour is quite different from our other tours. We start at Roma Bar, one of Darwin’s finest coffee spots, for a jolt of Java to get us going. There’s a menu here especially for us, and it’s hyper-local and wonderfully exotic, with lots of little tropical treats. Next is a short stroll along Austin Lane, which is smothered in Darwin’s fabulous street art. And there are several pieces of augmented reality that jump off the walls to make the art come to life. Next up is a selection of two of Darwin’s finest restaurants and more tasting plates for a lunch feast like no other. Staff will chat about the food and an emphasis on local produce. And there’s lots to eat—we’ll fill you up, and vegetarian and gluten-free dishes are available too. The top spots on this tour may include Bannsang, Hanuman, Snapper Rocks, Chow, and Pepperberry Restaurant at the Hilton. Depending on our route, we’ll also show you some of Darwin’s historic and cultural landmarks.
