And at this time of the year with the beautiful weather we are experiencing, Darwin Wharf is even better than ever! As you may or may not know, this place has quite a history with its humble beginnings back in the 1880’s which saw the pearling industry get started and those from other countries flocking to Darwin to get a piece of the action. The Wharf has perhaps become a well-known Darwin spot due to the fact that this is the significant part of town affected by the Japanese bombing in World War 2. On February 19, 1942 many service personnel and water side workers died at this very spot.
Today however, the Wharf is a place renowned for excellent al fresco dining and cooling sea breezes. Wander along the wharf and be taken in by the delicious aromas, blending Australian and Asian cuisines and of course, awesome seafood! Take a seat by the water for a cold bevvy of your choice, or maybe a meal. Experience the incredible Crustaceans Restaurant for yourself, and the laid back and friendly hospitality that Darwin is known and loved for. The food is just great and kids can eat free!
After grabbing a bite, you can even throw in a line from the fishing platforms on the Wharf! Quite a few of us here at Ray White Bayside have relaxed whilst wetting a line here, and of course, we have witnessed other people reeling in some incredible catches. Try your luck, because you never know what you may catch! The Wharf is also amazing for photography, and you’re sure to spot a few amateur and professional photographers, positioning to snap that perfect, quintessential Darwin shot! Maybe you’re one of them?!
So if you haven’t already experienced the Darwin Wharf for yourself, make sure you do! We recommend it as a great spot for Friday or Saturday night dinners, and you’ll be spoilt with loads of choice!
