Flight cost in June

by beckybabie83

Hi,

I will be flying from Melbourne to Darwin at the end of June and was wondering what the cheapest airfares for this time of year are? At the moment the cheapest flights are $169 one way. I don't know whether to just book these flights or take a chance and wait for cheaper flights?

Thanks,
Rebecca

That sounds like an excellent deal---we think $139 from Cairns to Sydney is a good deal at the moment--so $169 from Melbourne to Darwin sounds fantastic--I don't think you will get any better,in my opinion.Make sure taxes are included.
Enjoy Darwin.

I agree with tropicrd . Which airline is it? If you are not from Australia keep in mind most cheap flights cannot be altered or only altered with penalty.

Of course you never know what the airlines will do.But I do not see the very cheap deals they get in Europe.

Agree with other posters - seems a good deal. With the economy really starting to get better, I would believe we are seeing almost the last of these sort of prices. Only words of warning - a lot can happen in almost 6 months, so suggest you make sure you have travel insurance to cover cancellation etc.

When you consider that Melbourne to Darwin is half way to Hong Kong that rate sounds pretty good. be careful about being charged for luggage etc.

Great deal, book the flight immediately. You will love the Northern Territory. We were in Darwin early August last year, had a great time. Make certain you visit Litchfield National Park, Kakadu Nat Park etc.

Quick book it!!!!:)

Now if you are booking with Tiger Airlines, make sure you get to the airport well in advance of your flight!! Also check what baggage you can take.Many of my friends have flown with them and are very happy, you get what you pay for, hell who cares if it ain't much:)
I wish Tiger Airlines ( NOT Woods:)) would come and fly out of Cairns, we need some good prices from here!!

Have you tried webjet.com.au just type in the dates and where you want to go and webjet lists all the flights and carriers in order of cheapest to dearest flight.

Yep book it! Bargain I reckon!! :o) But as the others said...check to see if book on baggage is any extra and if so, pay that now.... not at the last minute at the airport, as that will be a lot extra then.

Travel Tips for Darwin

Best time to visit Darwin

by xuessium

The best months, weather-wise, would be during the winter months when the weather is actually dry up north in Australia. You get plenty of sun, blue skies and almost no rain.

As such the best months should be between late May - early October.

After that, the Big Wet slowly descends onto this part of Australia, and at its peak in December-January, you may get torrential rain and as well as tropical cyclones.

The worst cyclone to hit Darwin was in 1974 - Cyclone Tracy - on Christmas Eve and almost flattened the entire city. Know more about Cyclone Tracy by clicking the words to get to the link.

City Flag of Darwin

by xuessium

Darwin is the capitol city of the Northern Territories. The flag consists of three vertical stripes: green, yellow, red, with the coat of arms of the City of Darwin in the yellow stripe.

Territory Day

by skatzcatz

On the first of July each year Territorians celebrate Territory Day, marking the commencement of Self Government in the Territory on 1 July 1978. The day is celebrated in a number of ways, including the famous Territory Day fireworks (both public and private) and the presentation of the Territory Day Award.

Cycle Paths in Darwin & Palmerston

by skatzcatz

Traversing both Darwin and Palmerston are numerous walking and bicycle tracks. Drop into either the Darwin City Council or Palmerston City Council to pickup your free map. It is also on the Darwin City Council Webpage.

www.darwin.nt.gov.au

the link directly to the map is below. Happy cicycling.... bicycle of some sort. Available for hire at many backpackers and possibly bike shops. 2 Bike shops of note are on Cavanagh St across from the Post Office and Wheelmans on the McMinn Service Road.

Pine Creek

by aussirose

Pine Creek is further down the road past Adelaide River. This was the place where we lost OH_DK, one of our va's (virtual attendees) on our Survivor trip...read all about it on the link below :o)
Pine Creek is very interesting if you like to learn all about the old Australian Gold rush days.
It is also a good place to stop to enjoy one of Mayse's famous big burgers!
Check out the link to my Pine Creek page.
