Darwin International and Domestic Airport

 

Darwin International and Domestic Airport Australia

Darwin airport is a very modern smaller airport. What do we say - it's small and an international airport. Therefore the hustle and bustle is taken out of flying here.

As you drive up from McMillans Road the drive is around 3klm from lush vegetation. Then as in the photo the road spilts into two. For those of our clients wishing to park you will take the right fork in the road to the car park.

As of a few months ago there is a new dropoff entrance. Those folks who have been here before you can't drive up to the main building anymore.

There is a 3 minute vehicle dropoff area as the picture left shows around 100 metres from the main buiding. So grab your luggage and say your goodbyes and oh there are trolleys at the main office you just have to often go there first to get a luggage trolley.

It only takes a few minutes. Darwin Airport - Walk thru and at the top is the Airport Main doors there are 2 doors about 100 meters apart from each other. This is the walk from the dropoff area and main car park to the main terminal.

Rule 1. to all our valued clients don't forget your passport and airline tickets. Aslo it pays to be earlier instead of on time as sometime there is sometimes a queue to contend with.

Darwin Airport Private Hire Cars, Taxi and Airport Shuttle Bus

To the city you can obviously selfdrive but those folks requiring transport there are 4 main choices. (Don't try walking it and don't hitch a ride to our young clients/travellers).

Private Hire Cars - This web sites favourite mode of tranpsort would have to be the Private Hire Car.

A special recommendation to John at Darwin Private Hire. They turn up on time, load your luggage, have a friendly chat to you and treat you with that true aussie hospitality you expect from a Darwinian. To the city is $40 but worth it.Darwin Private Hire/Darwin Chauffeur
