Darwin International Airport caters for both international and domestic flights and has a cargo terminal to service the Northern Territory. After Cyclone Tracy destroyed Darwin in 1974, there was a full reconstruction which allowed for a new and improved airport and today the passenger terminal has a range of shops and cafes as well as Duty Free shopping for the international traveller. The airport is also listed as an emergency landing site for the United State Government Space Shuttle Program.
The airport currently services over 56,000 flights annually and connects Darwin to all Australian capitals, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Hobart but not Canberra, as well as some other regional airports such as Cairns and Broome. Internationally, you can access Singapore, East Timor and Bali direct from Darwin.

Drive to Discover the Beauty of Darwin
Aquascene – Have you tried feeding a fish in the ocean? Rent a car and move to the heart of Darwin where Aquascene is and witness hundreds of fish come to shore at high tide to be hand fed. This unique spectacle began over 50 years ago, when a nearby resident started throwing bread scraps to a few small mullet at high tide. Catfish, rays, cod, diamond fish and parrot fish may also be seen in the shallows for a few hours each day, and then return to sea with tide. Trays of bread are provided at regular intervals during the feeding period for hand feeding the mullet and milkfish. Rent a car and experience feeding times in Aquascene that changes daily depending on the tides, thus, before driving your rental car to visit Aquascene, it is important to check this information.
