Silence is Golden!
The Darwin Trailer Boat Club is Darwin’s oldest seaside Club. From its humble origins in 1958, 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.
Over the past fifty years the Club has forged strong links with the boating and fishing community. We host Darwin’s premier family fishing event, the Coopers Blue Water Classic. We also co-host the Sand Bar Cricket match with Variety, the Fannie Bay Swim with the Darwin Surf Life Saving Club, a Kids Classic Fishing day with Craig’s Fishing Warehouse, a last Saturday of the Month Car Boot Sale and many other Club events. The Club is also a home to many community groups including the Darwin Game Fishing Club who use our facilities for meetings, presentations and celebrations.
The club’s westerly aspect is ideal for witnessing Darwin’s famed tropical sunsets. Take a seat under the palms order cold ale and enjoy a truly amazing spectacle as the sun sinks into the horizon. Meanwhile the kids can swim in the pool, play in the playground or watch a video on the big screen. Family and kids are most welcome at this Club.
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.
