Palmerston Tavern – This is one of the most kid friendly pubs in Darwin. It has a kid’s menu and club4kids, a great kids program with activities, and an indoor playground.
Darwin Sailing Club – It has a million dollar view overlooking the water. The casual bistro setting is perfect for kids and it has a little playground for the kids to run amok on.
Tim’s Surf & Turf – Whether you are after chicken or steak, or salad or not, Tim’s is a great restaurant to take the kids. The kids eat for FREE with a paying adult meal every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night.
Stokes Hill Wharf – Set out over Darwin Harbour, it is a fun dining experience. There are tables and chairs along the huge pier. They have a range of different cuisines and meals available. When looking into the water you can sometimes see the HUGE fish swimming under the pier.
Casuarina All Sports Club – A great spot to take the kids to eat with plenty of child friendly features such as a kid’s play area, kids’ menu and kid’s club. They also have Kids Eat Free on Sunday nights.
Tracy Village Social and Sports Club – Every Monday and Tuesday kids eat free (under 12) with every main meal purchased. Every ki’s meal comes with a free ice cream too! The club has a great enclosed lawn space and outdoor playground, and indoor playroom too!
Frying Nemo Fish and Chips – A tranquil setting overlooking the water at Tipperary Waters Marina-
It has the best fish and chips in Darwin!
Lolas Pergola – Looking over the marina in Cullen Bay this whimsical circus themed restaurant is fun and colourful, perfect for kids. There are retro carousel ponies and old style carnival memorabilia toys to play on. There is even a tiny merry-go-round that works.
The menu is an American diner inspired one.
Berry Springs Tavern – Kids eat free with every main meal purchased. They have some great things set up to keep the kids entertained too; a blackboard, toys and colouring in, little tables and chairs and outside they have a secure play area. The best part would have to be the baby croc in the restaurant area and an emu named Steve!!
With so many options to choose from, what is stopping you from taking the kids somewhere special and enjoying a great meal in a family friendly atmosphere, every week?
