The Top End has a comprehensive bus network that connects Darwin with other towns in the area.
Walking and cycling are also great ways to explore Darwin if you are travelling in winter. The city of Darwin is quite compact, so commuting on foot between attractions such as Mindil Beach Market, the War Memorial and the Marina is not difficult on foot.
However, for those looking to visit the far-flung areas of Top End, renting a car might be the best option.
Types of transport: Public buses in and around Darwin are run by Darwinbus. They are affordable, comfortable and connect all major attractions of Darwin as well as the Palmerston and Casuarina suburbs. Alternatively, you can take the “TourTub”, a hop-on-hop-off open tourist bus that goes around the city.
Paying for transport: A single ticket costs $3 which allows you to travel for three hours on any bus route. There are also options for unlimited daily and weekly passes, costing $7 and $20 respectively.
Getting to and from the airport: Buslink buses can get you from Darwin Airport to the CBD.
Best apps for getting around: With NT Bus Tracker, you can search buses, view schedules and track buses in real time.
Taxi: Taxis can be hailed in Darwin from the streets, taxi ranks or can be pre-booked online and over a phone.
Uber: Uber doesn’t operate in Northern Territory.
Hiring and driving a car in the Top End is a fun-filled adventure. With a private vehicle, you have the liberty to explore remote areas that are not generally accessible by public transport or taxis.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan, we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
