Our lock coordinates are 12°26.948S, 130°51.086E.

With the unique Darwin waters subject to tidal ranges of up to 8 metres, Tipperary Waters Marina operates a lock facility to maintain our water levels and a tidal level of 4+ meters is required for lock movements. Our lock facility plays a crucial role in ensuring safe and efficient access for boats entering and exiting the marina, particularly during significant tidal fluctuations.

Given the dynamic nature of the tidal conditions, boaters are encouraged to plan their journeys accordingly, taking into account the timing of tidal cycles and the availability of our lock services. By staying informed, and exercising caution, boaters can navigate the unique experience posed by tidal ranges, making the most of their upcoming boating adventure in the pristine Darwin’s waters.
