Rydges Darwin Central
Attractions & Activities in Darwin/Palmerston
When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.
While you’re with us, do check out Wave Lagoon, just a short distance from the hotel. This is one of the coolest attractions, with a palm-fringed swimming pool that turns into a tube-riding, boogie-boarding bucket of fun when the waves roll in every 20 minutes. The fully patrolled Wave Lagoon is perfect for families. Banana lounges, beach umbrellas and shady patches of lawn. Aqua Zumba classes every Sunday from 9am are a HUGE hit with tourists and locals alike.
