Planning Exemption for Ferris Wheel to Join NT Skyline

NT Government

Stokes Hill Wharf is set to reach great heights this Dry Season as it welcomes a 35 metre high observation wheel to enjoy 360 degree views over Darwin and surrounds.

Minister for Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics has made a temporary planning exemption to allow the Darwin Waterfront to set up a Ferris wheel at Stokes Hill Wharf.

The Wheel on the Wharf – WOW! will be operated by national company Skyline Attractions from 11 June to October and located in the carpark adjacent to the Royal Flying Doctor Service Darwin Tourist Facility.

Each ride is ten minutes, allowing up to six people to fit in each gondola, making it a super unique fun outdoor experience for the whole family whilst enjoying the beautiful views of Darwin harbour, complemented by the variety of food and beverage options.

The exemption means up to 25 carparks at the wharf will be utilised until early October to house the new dry season attraction.

There will still be three hour car parking available at Stokes Hill Wharf along with the Free Waterfront 21 seater Shuttle.
