Ferris Wheel returns to Stokes Hill Wharf

NT Government

The popular Skyline Attraction Ferris Wheel is returning to Stokes Hill Wharf for the 2022 dry season with two exciting new additions.

A 9-hole Australiana themed mini-golf course and pop-up pizza bar will double the fun, creating a precinct with activities for the entire family.

The 35 metre observation wheel provides 360 degree views of Darwin’s harbour and skyline, giving tourists and locals alike the chance to see the city from above.

Installation of the Skyline Precinct will commence this week and will mean a number of carparks at Stokes Hill Wharf will be utilised until early October to house the attractions.

Three hour car parking will still be available at the Wharf along with the free Waterfront shuttle which operates every 15 minutes.

The Skyline Precinct will open to the public on Friday, 27 May with tickets available from [https://www.skylineattractions.com.au]
