The Northern Territory Government has recently announced in the 2017-18 Budget that $500,000 has been allocated to undertake investigations into facilitating the development of a water theme park in Darwin.
An international standard water theme park located in the inner Darwin area will encourage tourists to visit the Territory and stay longer while also improving the livability of Darwin.
An integrated development could include mixed use visitor attractions such as entertainment precincts, recreational activities, cultural experiences and food and retail outlets.
Initial work to investigate the viability of a water theme park has been positive. Additional work to develop the business case for the project is expected to include:
- testing of market capacity and interest, and potential visitations
- potential revenue, costs and specifications for the project
- an assessment of the broader economic benefits and outcomes.
