Darwin Accommodation

Australian Traveller's Guide To Darwin Accommodation

Sun-soaked backdrops, lashings of adventure and a thrilling emerging food scene invite epic exploration, but no journey to Darwin is complete without an ultra-comfortable base camp and luckily, this city offers them in spades. From plush hotels in the city and family-friendly resorts to laid-back lodgings that are tailored to both nature lovers and party animals, there’s a slice of Darwin accommodation for every style of traveller.

Darwin resorts

Staying in the action has its perks but serious zen is best served at a Darwin resort located outside the CBD. Offering daily schedules of activities, luxurious digs, photo-ready scenery and premium dining and wining experiences, Darwin’s best resorts are holiday destinations in their own right. Choose from the ultimate tropical dream, the highly acclaimed Mindil Beach Casino Resort, as well as family-friendly serviced apartments in the cosy neighbourhood of Parup just five minutes out of Darwin’s CBD. Reliably charming chains Rydges and Quest have also set up expansive outposts in Darwin which are filled with lovely luxuries.

Darwin city hotels

Bustling nightlife and waterfront vistas are at your doorstep if you narrow your Darwin accommodation search down to the city’s main downtown area and its central business district. Sprinkled with top-notch inner city hotels to suit every budget, Darwin city is the place to be for easy access to tourist magnet Mitchell Street and its bars and restaurants, plus the stunning lush green Esplanade overlooking Darwin Harbour. Hotels to consider include household names in the hotel game such as Hilton and Vibe Hotel as well as self-contained apartment aficionados like Mantra and Oaks.

Darwin airport hotels

Forget what you know about airport hotels. Darwin’s offerings are surprisingly upscale and stacked with deluxe amenities you’ll more than appreciate if you’re flying late or obscenely early. Also, there’s a heightened demand in this neck of the woods as Darwin Airport is open 24 hours a day and flights are scheduled right around the clock. Accustomed to travellers in need of a convenient room on their journey to and from Kakadu National Park or perhaps exploring the city during a layover, the best Darwin airport hotels offer luxury pool villas, clean and comfortable spaces, sprawling resort-style facilities, and value-for-money rooms.

Darwin caravan parks and camping

It’s a corner of the country renowned for its natural wonders — so doesn’t it make sense to extend your outdoor immersion one step further? A diverse and far-reaching collection of Darwin caravan parks and camping sites provide comfortable digs for weary heads after a day spent embracing Mother Nature’s handiwork. Venturing about 10 kilometres out of Darwin city centre, you’ll begin to spot some stellar options including familiar chains like Big4 and Discovery Parks, plus a couple of remote pit-stops right near the Top End’s spectacular Litchfield National Park.
