On the southwest corner of the Darwin peninsula, Cullen Bay Marina is a full service facility popular with cruising yachts.
It is not a conventional marina managed by a single authority, but rather a collection of berths individually owned under a strata title system. However, some berths are usually available for short-term rental for visiting yachts, except in July.
Because of the 8-metre tidal range, as with all marinas in Darwin, there is a lock system. Inside the basin there are 140 berths and the area has been developed into commercial units with shops, offices and restaurants. Plan for higher tide arrival as approaches can get shallow.
Near the lock outside there is a commercial dock for passenger cruise operations at the fuel pontoon.
