Public transport

Getting around Darwin is fairly easy thanks to public transport and taxis. Riding a push bike is popular in Darwin as the city is small enough to discover on two wheels. Many sights are also within walking distance of each other, making walking a healthy option chosen by locals.

Public transport options

  • Public buses in Darwin are run by Buslink and Territory Transit with most services operating seven days a week including public holidays (excluding Christmas Day and Good Friday). This bus network operates from the Darwin, Casuarina and Palmerston interchanges.

  • Greyhound Australia coaches connect Darwin to Alice Springs, Katherine and Adelaide.

  • Darwin Railway Station is only used by the Adelaide–Darwin train (known as the Ghan) for its twice weekly service.

  • A ferry service operated by Sealink connects Darwin to the Tiwi Islands to the north and Mandorah to the south west.

  • Darwin Airport is serviced by all major airlines and its international capacity makes Darwin considered as Australia’s low fare gateway for travel to Asia and beyond.
