Darwin International Airport (DRW)
(Darwin, Northern Territory - NT, Australia)
The main airport in the Northern Territory region of Australia, Darwin Airport (DRW) is approximately 13 km / 8 miles to the north-east of Darwin city centre and off the busy McMillans Road, covering some 750 acres / 300 hectares. Airlines here are both domestic and international, with the highest number of flights being offered by Qantas and the city's very own Airnorth, a regional airline service linking many remote towns and villages.
With two runways, one of which is more than double the length of the other, the airfield at Darwin Airport shares with the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and various helicopters. The airport itself features just one terminal and has recently installed a new automated parking system, with a competitive sliding-scale tariff. Also opened a short time ago is the Bagot Road intersection, which is expected to ease the load of more than 500,000 vehicles travelling to and from Darwin Airport each year.
A modern, automatic parking system is now in place at Darwin Airport and features both long-term and short-term parking, with convenient 'pay stations' nearby. Central Darwin is easy to reach along the nearby Stuart Highway, using either hire car, taxi operators, or frequent shuttle buses, which can be found directly outside of the terminal.
About Darwin Tourism
Founded in 1869, the city of Darwin, in Australia's Northern Territory (NT), is actually a fairly modern city and known for its rich Aboriginal heritage. A number of important 19th-century buildings do remain within Darwin, while for many, it is the beaches that are the main draw card, such as Mandorah, Mindil and Vestey's beaches.
The many tourist attractions within Darwin are just minutes away from DRW Airport, such as Admiralty House, the Australian Aviation Heritage Centre, the Australia Pearling Exhibition, Crocodylus Park, Crocodile Farm, the Indo-Pacific Marine Exhibition, Myilly Point Historic Precinct, WWII Oil Storage Tunnels, and a number of impressive golf clubs, including the championship 18-hole Darwin Golf Club itself.
