Cruise ship fun
As the dry season starts to bring cooler weather into Darwin and the great dry season events start to take hold, cruise ship fans have a few short visits to look forward to throughout May.

With just two large cruise ship visits scheduled in May, early risers will be able to focus their visits. The best view is available from Bicentennial Park on The Esplanade or the Darwin Waterfront Sky Bridge. Great viewing will be available from either location but remember to bring along your binoculars.

Parking is available along The Esplanade or at the Deck Chair Cinema when the cinema is closed. This activity is free and child friendly however this is a viewing activity only, and no access is available onboard or on the wharf during cruise ship visits.
