Darwin Water Theme Park
The Northern Territory Government is facilitating the development of a new international standard water theme park in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia
Sector: Recreation and tourism
Investment type: Greenfield
Estimated total project cost: $30 to $50 million
Investment amount sought: Variable
Project status: Proposed project
The project aims to:
• Improve the liveability of Darwin by providing a large scale family attraction and event destination
• Add to Darwin’s tourism competitive strengths by providing a significant reason to visit and stay longer in the city
• Stimulate and support the local economy by attracting major investment, and
• Create substantial and enduring employment opportunities.
The project will leverage the $200 million investment by the Northern Territory Government in tourism marketing and infrastructure over the next five years.
The Darwin Water Theme Park project represents a unique and exciting opportunity to design construct, operate and maintain an international standard water theme park in Darwin.
The project could form part of a mixed use development to maximise the experience of visitors, which could include:
• Entertainment precincts
• Recreational activities
• Cultural experiences
• Food and retail outlets, and
• Further unique and distinctive offerings.
In August 2017, the NT Government engaged Pico Play to complete a detailed business case for the Darwin Water Theme Park.
The NT Government will shortly consider the detailed business case and decide whether to approach the market to facilitate private sector development of the project.
