Fodor's Review

The best views of Darwin Harbour are from this working pier, which receives cargo ships, trawlers, defense vessels, and, occasionally, huge cruise liners. It's also a favorite spot for Darwinites to fish, and when the mackerel are running you can join scores of locals over a few beers. The cluster of cafés becomes crowded on weekends and when cruise ships arrive. On the city side, in the Waterfront Precinct, is the Wave Lagoon (entry A$5 half day, $8 full day; open daily

10–6) and a free, stinger-free (safe from jellyfish) swimming lagoon. Both are understandably popular on hot days.
