Lee Point Beach is perfect for children to burn off energy as it offers a big open space. When the tide is low you can see rock pools full of crabs, little fish and other small sea creatures. These rock pools will keep your children busy. Sand around Lee Point Beach seems to be whiter than sand on the beach around the south part of Darwin and is great for building castles.
Children, as well as adults, love to take a plunge in the sea water, especially with Darwin's warm and humid weather. If you were planning to take a dip in the water, please be aware that Darwin beaches are not the same as other parts of Australia. With box jellyfish and crocodiles in the water, you need to be careful and extra cautious in or near sea water. If you got stung by box jellyfish, flush the area with vinegar and get medical help as soon as possible. Generally, during dry season months (May to August), the water and beaches around Darwin are safe from jellyfish, and the Darwin beaches and creeks are all protected by rangers and crocodile traps.
A short distance from the beach's carpark, you can find a well-preserved bunker used during World War II. Some areas around this beach are a sacred place for Larrakia People, so please respect the history and the sacred places.
Lee Point Beach is also a good spot for fishing. Please check the tides on website www.fishingspots.com.au/s/lee-point. You can find Queenfish and Tuna around the rocky out crops. Mackerel and Whiting are a particularly good find around September and you can find Barramundi all year around.
