    Parking In Darwin
    Free Parking - after business hours - Meter Parking (Pay and display parking) - during business hours
    There are a few zones, simply the closer to the CBD the higher the rate.
    The cost ranges between $1.20 cents and 60 cents per hour depending on where you park. Last look it was about $1.20 for 3 hours on the highest rate.
    Our choice for parking has to be meter parking next to the Post Office in cavenagh Street. It's perfect for smaller motohomes and 4WD clients.
    The Esplanade is our second choice. There is around 2klm of a straight wide road (see photos)
    When he came out he had a few attempts and the Darwinain folks in passing cars let him take his time - That's Darwin.

    The Esplanade - Our favourite is The Elspanade as you can see the photo above motorhomes can pull in and out of the parking spots quiet easily.

    Free Parking
    Woolworths
    in Cavenagh Street Darwin has great free parking for their shoppers and often see our motorhomes in there.
    The ANZ, Commonwealth, Bendigo and National Banks are all within 150 metres of this carpark.

    The Mitchell Centre is located on Knuckey Street between Mitchell Street and The Esplanade. Actually it's next door to police headquarters.
    There is free parking for 3 hours. For for the conditions at the boom gate.
    This is under ground and we don't recommend Motorhomes as there is low clearance and very difficult for a motorhome to reverse out of.
    Though great from our 4WD client just pay attention to the height limitations.

    West Lane off Bennett Street - This car park is a pay for use carpark witha few entrances.
    The entrance is off Bennett Street near Parliament House.

    Smith Street
    From Daly Street right to the Entrance of the mall is again a parking meter area but as you can see spacious car parking.

    Mitchell Street from Lambells Terrace Daly Street right to Knuckey Street is again a parking meter area but as you can see spacious car parking.
    If you travel along Lambell Terrace from the roundabout roundabout for app. 300m you then turn left into Mitchell Street.
    As from the picture top left and top middle there is wide cark spaces for around 1klm.
    There is an area near daly street where the parking is none or limited then after Daly street it becomes parking meters again.
    From Lambells Terrace roundabout as we know it (pictured right) right to Daly street this is free parking in many areas.

    McMinn Street car park is where a lot of CBD workers park is is sometimes full.
    It's on McMinn Street just turn right off Daly Street Bridge you can see here and coontinue up about 2klm and you will see the carpark on the left.
    Before the Northern Territory News Building.

    Stuart Highway - Now there are folks who think they will park on Stuart Highway so the won't get lost in the city.
    Folks if you park here the walk into the city will take you anywhere from 15mins to 30 mins depending on you and in the heat add 10mins.
    As you can see there si plenty of parking 'Metered' and some free in the CBD itself just a few metres from the Smtih Street Mall.
