Wave Lagoon, Darwin

4.6
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.
