    Driving tips in Darwin Airport

    Operating 24 hours a day, Darwin Airport has both an international and domestic terminal, which is situated around 15-20 minutes from the central business district (CBD). The city is comprised of wards and suburbs, which takes pleasure in a great redevelopment of its CBD. When driving around the central city, you will enjoy a more laid-back feel than the active regions of Australia, such as Melbourne and Sydney.

    A car hire drive from Darwin to Alice Springs is more than 1500 kilometres and takes almost 16 hours travel time at a fair safe speed. Apart from Alice Springs, there are other road trip destinations from Darwin that you can check out.  Since lots of drivers are not used to driving faster, it is recommended you do the same. Take note that driving fast on gravel and dirt roads is notably hazardous particularly around corners.
