Top Hire Car Tips in Darwin

As the gateway to pristine national parks and iconic natural attractions, a trip to Darwin and the Northern Territory makes for the perfect road trip. These are our top tips for driving in and around Darwin:

  1. If you are driving onwards from Darwin to explore more of the Northern Territory, check with your hire car supplier for suggestions on the best type of vehicle for your trip. Some cars are not suitable or allowed on unsealed roads.
  2. Parking in Darwin’s CBD is plentiful with free untimed parking on weekends. Weekday parking starts at AUD$1.30/hr.
  3. You can use your interstate or overseas driver's licence for up to three months and must carry this with you at all times. If your overseas license isn’t in English, you should also carry an International Driving Permit.
  4. Always drive to the conditions. For example, drive slower if it is raining.
  5. If hitting the road during peak hour times, allow additional time to get to your destination. In Darwin, there is often more traffic from 7:30am - 8:00am and 4:30pm - 5:00pm weekdays.
