Lake Alexander, Darwin

4.2
#12 of 19 in Parks in Darwin
The man-made Lake Alexander sits languorously amid trees and lush grassland, giving it a laid-back, picturesque air. Officially opened in 1991, the lake was named after Alec Fong Lim, a former Mayor of Darwin. The water is filtered, meaning that dangerous marine predators are usually not to be found in the lake.

  • Perfect for a free family day out. Clean BBQ area alongside a well shaded playground that is perfect for children of all ages and abilities. The lake is free and safe to swim in, with a slight gradient so you can walk safely in. Plenty of room to play cricket of run freely away from traffic.
  • It's a very nice setting, so clean and all facilities you need. Love it. !
