Parking, Traffic and Transport

Darwin provides plenty of parking within easy reach of the CBD. You can choose to use the multi-storey West Lane car park next to the Mall, or the Chinatown or Cavenagh Street car parks close to the main commercial area. On street metered parking in three different zones is available throughout the CBD area except the Mall, which is closed to traffic.  

There are a number of off-street city carparks each having well marked with the familiar international parking emblem. They all have a number of parking bays designated for use by people with a disability.

Visit the Car Parks and Parking Zones page to find out more about parking in Darwin's CBD.

Buses are the main mode of public transport in Darwin and are operated by the Northern Territory Government. The fleet is maintained to a high standard and most buses are airconditioned for passenger comfort.
