Come & Stay

Wagait Beach and the Cox Country Club can be reached by road or by sea. There are also several options for holiday and weekender accommodation. No  need to drive back to Darwin in the dark – spend a relaxed evening at the Club and stay the night for breakfast on the beach.

By SeaLink Ferry & Free Club Bus  – about 20 minutes

Ferry Catch the SeaLink Ferry from Cullen Bay for the 15 minute cruise to Mandorah Jetty. You can buy your tickets on the boat, online or at their office. SeaLink’s ferry  timetable can be found here Sealink Cullen Bay to Mandorah Schedule

When you arrive at Mandorah Jetty, if you don’t have a friend to pick you up by car, you can call the Cox Club Bus. Call Kev 0459 053 522 for complimentary return journey to and from the club. If you are on bicycle, there are safe bike paths for most of the way, and it will take about 15 minutes cycling.

By Road – about 1.75 hours

The road from Darwin to Wagait Beach is sealed and the  140 klm route passes through some of the Top End’s most iconic scenery. Simply drive down the Stuart Highway about 50 klm and then turn right at the Cox Peninsula Road (the tourist route signposted  as Peninsula Way).

Stop for a swim at the thermal pools of Berry Springs, pick up local mango ice cream at Crazy Acres or grab a meal at Berry Springs Tavern of Darwin River Tavern and head north through Coastal Vine Forests  and past fields of termite mounds until you reach the end of the road – Wagait Beach!
