Darwin Mall to Wave Pool Walk

Walk to the Wave Pool from the Darwin Mall or the Bus Stop in Harry Chan Ave in about 10 minutes, enjoying the spectacular view of Stokes Hill Wharf from the glass lifts and skywalk.

This photo shows the Knuckey Street end of the Smith Street Mall, if you are on your first day in town, it should be easy to find.

The Mall covers Smith Street from Knuckey Street to Bennet Street, where Snith St becomes a normal road again.

This photo is about half way along the Mall, looking from the Knuckey St end.

There are several arcades along the length of the mall, with plenty of the usual things you would expect in an inner city mall, souvenir shops, art galleries, cafes, jewellers and so on.

This shot is looking down Smith street from the Bennet St end of the Mall towards the wharf precinct and wave pool.
The purple walkway extends all the way to the end of Smith St and the beginning of the skywalk across Kitchener Drive.

To me the walkway looks as if it has been very cleverly designed to provide no shade at all during the heat of the day, still you won't get lost if you follow it.

The Harry Chan bus terminal runs off to the left of Smith St.
If you are coming in to the wave pool by bus, this is where you will find yourself. From here it is only a few minutes walk to the pool.

Walk to the end of Smith Street and you will see the entrance to the skywalk and lifts.

The wooden platform in this photo leads to a small lift which will take you doown one level to the main walkway across Kitchener Drive.

There is also a wide flight of stairs beside this, just going to the main walkway.
