Darwin Wave Lagoon - closed until further notice

In response to the stage 2 restrictions implemented by the Federal Government and the changing situation of the coronavirus pandemic that includes the closure of swimming pools from tonight, Wednesday 25 March 2020, the Wave Lagoon will be closed until further notice from tomorrow, Thursday 26 March 2020.

All Darwin Waterfront Memberships will be extended for the period of the closure.

We understand this is a difficult time for the public, and sincerely apologise for the inconvenience.

Catch a wave at Darwin's coolest Waterfront attraction: the Wave Pool. Here, a palm-fringed swimming pool turns into a tube-riding, boogie-boarding bucket of fun when the siren signals the start of the swell. Twenty minutes bursts of waves send inflatable tubes bobbing about and boogie boards riding the crests. The swell here is gentle enough that there's little danger of wiping out (and there are no surfboards allowed) but there are red-and-yellow-clad surf lifeguards at the sidelines to keep everyone safe.
Relax on banana lounges under enormous beach umbrellas, or spread out on the lawn in the shade. There are wadding pools and fountains to keep the kids entertained, and a kiosk to keep the whole family in supply of cold snacks.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
