Stokes Hill Wharf

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

The historic Stokes Hill Wharf offers a relaxed friendly atmosphere with seaside alfresco eateries, casual restaurant dining, a spot for recreational fishing and is a hub for various cruises and tours on beautiful Darwin Harbour.

It is also home to the Bombing of Darwin tourist attraction & Royal Flying Doctor Service Darwin Tourist Facility. This attraction showcases two iconic stories in the one location: the RFDS, which began operations in the NT in 1939 and the Bombing of Darwin in 1942. Both of these historic events helped forge the resolve and resilience of the people who live in Australia’s Northern Territory. It features cutting-edge technology including virtual reality and holographic experiences that are the first of its kind in Australia focusing on the history of WWII. Entry fee applies.

Open 7 days, enjoy year-round panoramic views and sensational sunsets, fish feeding at night and free live entertainment on Wednesday and Sundays during the Dry Season.
