Darwin without a car

by usernmea

We are arriving in Darwin from Sydney in late January. Have 4yo kids. We are not going to hire a car.

Any tips?

We would love to have a river cruise or go somewhere out of the city but we don't know if that's possible without hiring a car?

Thnx.

Your children would love aquascene where you feed the wild fish, it is in town so no need for a car. check out the website www.aquascene.com.au

There are harbour cruises....http://www.spiritofdarwin.net/ there may be other companies, not sure.
Territory wildlife park is good, but without a car, I think you would have to do a tour to there, the same with the "jumping crocodiles"

Re: Darwin without a car

There are a lot of tour operators who organise trips to the Kakadu National park out of Darwin, so no need for a car.
I have randomly picked one aftre googling, but if you get the Lonely Planet or other budget guides you might find other options.

Another vote for the Jumping Croc Cruise and the Territory Wildlife Park. We visited last year & Darwin had a fantastic time! However January is the monsoon season in the north of Australia so be prepared for lots of rain. There are a number of tour companies so I wouldn't book anything until you get there. Have a great time!!
Cheers, Ann.

Re: Darwin without a car

Hi We were in Darwin August this year for 3 or 4 days. There is no need for a car as there is public transport t(bus) to most places, I guess the bus transport runs more frequently on week days than weekends.

The main city district is walkable.We stayed down in the new Convention Centre district, new hotel, however there were many apartments near completion, a 10 minute walk to the city.

They also have small buses ("hop on hop off style") that get you around to the various spots.
On our last day we hired a car, just to drive around , but really did not need it.

The Darwin museum is well worth visiting, has a very good section on Cyclone Tracy.

Litchfield park is worth a day tour. You can also take a day tour to Kakadu.

Plenty of tips on VT, I recommend you visit the Darwin pages of all members who have replied, they will contain excellent information.

Agree with everyone...also,where do you plan to stay? I ask this as I was in Darwin in August (too busy to put tips up :() and I did not have a car..walked everywhere...but, there is also a free courtesy bus that travels to a number of locations and stops off at a number of hotels.

As others have said you can book day tours to Litchfield, Kadadu and Katherine Gorge...you just need to get up early!!

The sunset cruise is very nice...there are a number available..again, I will put a tip up about the one I went on in the next week or so..Cape Adieu..we took our own bottle of wine..the food was excellent

Dive Site - Bellbird Trawler Wreck

by skatzcatz

A trawler which sank off Lamaroo Beach at the height of Cyclone Tracy. She lies on her side in 15 metres of water and is home to some quite resonable sized fish. A good dive in sheltered waters away from the wind.

20/12/2004: visibility was down to 2 metres, dark and overcast, still a good dive.

typical visibility for Darwin Harbour
