Darwin Transport Guide

Cycling is a fun and inexpensive way to get around the capital of the Northern Territory. There are buses, but they don’t come as frequently as you might hope. Unless you have a hire car, taxis are a quick way to get from A to B.

How to get around Darwin

If you decide to hire a car, small cars are cheap enough and most companies offer deals that give you enough kilometres to get to Kakadu National Park and back over a number of days. Four major bus lines run through the city and will get you to most hotspots including Fannie Bay, Nightcliff, Rapid Creek, Casuarina Parap and Stuart Park, Museum & Art Gallery, Fannie Bay Gaol Museum and East Point. Still, it makes sense to get your pedal power on for trips around town: cruise down to Mindil Beach Sunset Market and take a scenic ride along the waterfront – stopping off at the Darwin Ski Club for a cold one, of course.
