The man-made Lake Alexander sits languorously amid trees and lush grassland, giving it a laid-back, picturesque air. Officially opened in 1991, the lake was named after Alec Fong Lim, a former Mayor of Darwin. The water is filtered, meaning that dangerous marine predators are usually not to be found in the lake.

Lake Alexander Reviews
very nice and relaxing place to visit. There is a lot of different places to visit in that area so it is great if you want to do them all in a day. the area was very dry but if you go after the rain..... more »
A gorgeous spot for a picnic and maybe a swim, though I found the water too warm to bother to get in. Lovely park with beautiful trees and a great scenic drive. Beautifully maintained. more »
Perfect for a free family day out. Clean BBQ area alongside a well shaded playground that is perfect for children of all ages and abilities. The lake is free and safe to swim in, with a slight gradient so you can walk safely in. Plenty of room to play cricket of run freely away from traffic.
It's a very nice setting, so clean and all facilities you need. Love it. !
