Plane or train

All major Australian airlines fly into Darwin. Just four hours from Sydney, domestic flights arrive daily. The It's Closer Than You Think flyer provides more information on flight times to the NT.

We recommend flying to Nhulunbuy in Arnhem Land, just a short 90 minute flight from Darwin. Travel the Top End via the famous Ghan, one of the great rail journeys of the world.


Self-drive is one of the most popular ways to experience the NT. Hire a car or a campervan to get in and around the main town centres and drive between regions. Discover more drive journeys


A range of cruise lines visit Darwin throughout the year. Recommend pre or post touring in the Top End before or after your clients’ cruise.


There are a huge range of tours available throughout the NT to showcase the best of the NT over a day, a week or longer. Find tour operators via the Product Search on the home page.
