Darwin swimming pools, beaches and waterfalls.

Darwin swimming pools, beaches, rock pools and waterfalls are popular in a climate with average temperatures above 30C.

However some of these places are also popular with crocodiles and box jellyfish, both of which can be fatal. So before you take a running jump into some enticing cool water, check that it is safe.

Public Swimming Pools

These pools are open all year, although hours may vary with the seasons. While it is true that a small crocodile was found in the Nightcliff Pool recently ( probably a prank ) these are all well maintained and safe places for a dip.

The Nightcliff Pool can be a very pleasant place in the evenings with a cool sea breeze coming in over the cliffs.
