Darwin water theme park

The Northern Territory (NT) Government is seeking expressions of interest (EOIs) from suitably qualified parties, also know as a proponent, to build and operate a new international-standard water theme park in the Darwin central business district (CBD).

The Darwin water theme park represents an important element in the NT Government’s vision to:

  • grow and strengthen the Darwin CBD
  • improve the liveability of Darwin by providing a large scale family attraction and event destination
  • add to Darwin’s tourism strengths by providing another significant reason for tourists to visit Darwin and stay longer in the Northern Territory
  • stimulate and unlock additional investment in the local economy
  • create enduring direct and indirect employment opportunities.

A two-stage competitive process has commenced to facilitate the private sector delivery of the project. Stage one is a call for EOIs, which will be followed by a request for detailed proposals stage.

The NT Government encourages qualifying developers, operators and investors to submit proposals for this unique and exciting investment opportunity.
