Suggestions for 4 day Darwin itinerary

Planning to stay for four days in Darwin in November. I shall be relying mainly on public transport and may take a few bus tours if they meet my budget. Any suggestions for Darwin day tours and excursions for one day from Darwin?

Thanks for the new post. But have you done any more research?!!

You don't say your budget either!

Day tours in Novemeber will not need to be booked in advance as it is not peak season and will be very muggy, hence its just too hot for lots of people. In saying that, when you get here you can walk down Mitchell street and see many places offering tours to all the usual spots.

Hi,

Have a read through some of the FAQ's & Trip Reports located on your right hand side of the screen. Also this link of mine may give you some extra ideas.

tripadvisor.com/GoListDetail-i18612-Trip_Rep…

For accommodation - look on www.wotif.com.au under Darwin to see what suits your budget.

Tours - Litchfield or Kakadu National Park. Plenty of tours available in town to check out when you arrive.

Thanks. The links are useful. Do the local bus routes cover any tourist places. There is apparently a bus pass that provides for unlimited travel

Yes some of the routes service the attractions

www.transport.nt.gov.au/public/bus/darwin.

Museum, mindil, parp markets, gaol, Cullen bay, rapid creek markets etc a serviced easily by bus.

city WALKABLE.

Or you can get the hop on hop off bus which goes to everything, but more pricey than a normal bus pass.

You should check out what you want to do and then ask relevant questions on which route as its a broad question you have asked.

Shri5 if you visit transport.nt.gov.au/public/journey-planner it will tell you the bus numbers and times and walking distance between 2 places in Darwin. for some buses you could have a long wait as they do not run all that often.
