Description: The Darwin Trailer Boat Club is Darwin's oldest seaside Club. From its humble origins in 1954, trading from a modified caravan, the Club has grown to become a Darwin institution. Today the Club boasts an architect-designed modernist Club House with a capacity of 1,000 people that takes full advantage of its absolute water frontage. Whilst the Darwin Trailer Boat Club is a members club we do welcome people visiting Darwin and the general public to enjoy our facilities and our hospitality. Visitors are allowed to use the Club for up to six occasions in any one year. Many choose to join before their sixth visit, seduced by the ideal setting, the fabulous fare at the Bistro and the Club spirit. Ask a Darwin local why they prefer the Blue Water Bistro and they might tell you it's because the seafood is always fresh and sourced locally. They might say that the price is right and the service always friendly. Possibly siting on the shore of the Arafura Sea won them over. Families love the pool and playground for the kids to entertain themselves in as the older ones enjoy a second drink. It could be the convenience of the Bistro staying open all day long. We think it's all of these things and more.

A great place to catch a brilliant sunset, plus drink and dinner. Can be somewhat noisy as it's a family oriented place. Good venue for relaxing.

Loved the atmosphere, the sunset and the food.

Easy to navigate around. The DTBC staff were super friendly.

I had the calamari and chips - such a huge portion.

I recommend it to everyone. It gives you the feeling of the Territory.
