Darwin Wave Pool

Darwin Waterfront cooperation hosts a large array of indoor & outdoor precincts including the project focus which was devised around the wave & recreation lagoons.

Built as a part of the Darwin Waterfront Project, this Boogie Board Wave Pool is the largest wave pool in Australia, & at the time of design, is one of only six wave pools in the world. The pool is 2m in depth & covers 4,000 square meters, including an area with more shallow water. The waves run on a cycle, with 10 different wave patterns for all types of swimmers & boogie boarders.

GNFP (BEC) was responsible for the pool’s structure, wave plant, pool filtration, mechanical & hydraulic services. The 1.2m high boogie board wave is produced by pneumatic systems by Murphy Waves & Services designed by VOS Group.
