The wharf itself is nothing to write home about although the RFDS museum and display can be found here and a couple of cafe's. Also the main point for cruising and plenty of free parking.

Great place to grab a meal anytime of the day. Great sunsets. We checked out the RFDS first then wandered down for a meal. Car park is on the wharf and can get pretty busy.

A number of restaurants and food halls made this worthwhile. Crustaceans Restaurant was outstanding and excellent value for money.

Great variety of food from fish and chips to Asian and Indian and some buffets. The place never disappoints a must visit while in Darwin. Outdoors eating by the water and the harbour with so many places to choose your food from.

There are public tables to sit at and you buy your food at outlets. A bottle shop is onsite but there is nothing to stop BYO. There is also a full table service restaurant (not BYO). I hope this answer is helpful.
