Stokes Hill Wharf
Stokes Hill Wharf is primarily a historical tourist precinct with a number of dining facilities on the wharf itself. The history of the Wharf dates back to the early 1800s with the arrival of European settlers. On 19th February 1942, the Japanese bombed Darwin, with the Wharf bearing the full force of the invasion. Many ships and amphibious planes were sunk and many people lost their lives.
The Wharf Precinct continues to be one of Darwin’s most popular venues among tourists and locals alike and strategically located within the Darwin Waterfront precinct.
Harbour cruise vessels are moored at the wharf with facilities provided to embark and disembark passengers. A fishing area is popular with locals and visitors.
The wharf remains a working wharf for smaller marine industry users and large cruising yachts.
