Come one, come all on your skatey, skates or scooter to the Jingili Water Gardens between 2-6pm on Sunday June 20. Darwin Skate School is hosting some amazing skate activities for FREE thanks to LAUNCH Darwin, City of Darwin and our traditional owners of Larrakia Country.

Darwin and surrounds has a vibrant skating community. It's time for us to get together young and not as young, and show off our amazing lifestyle. 

Skate Stations

1. Skate Park

The Jingili Skate Park will be open as always. Most ideal for those ready for ramps and aware of their surroundings. Skate Parks can get very fast!

2. Rhythm Dance Floor

Be sure to check out our pop up rhythm sessions. Our coaches will show you some of their favourite basic moves that will have you grooving in no time. This station will also share space with our littlest of skaters and alternate sessions for them...Don't miss this one! 

3. Park Cruise

Take an organised cruise around the outer path of the gardens. There will be more than one, and its a perfect opportunity for those who can skate stably at walking speed to enjoy the serenity. Suitable for most ages

For those with a bit more stability and readiness. How do you manage a hill without loosing control? Our coaches will show you how.


Darwin Roller Girls are mixing up some yum yums so support your local roller derby league and snack out at the park.
