Darwin Airport


Darwin Airport is the busiest airport in the Northern Territory and one of the primary gateways into Australia’s Top End. The international airport is located in the Darwin suburb of Eaton, which is 13 kilometres northeast of the CBD. The journey from the city to the airport only takes about 15 minutes by car. The airport offers access to the vibrant city of Darwin as well as must-visit spots nearby like Kakadu National Park and the Tiwi Islands.

Darwin Airport has made major environmental strides in recent years and has won multiple awards in that area. One such honour was the ‘Airport Innovation and Excellence Award for Environmental Management’, awarded by the Australian Airport Association in 2016. The airport was also given the ‘Asia-Pacific Green Airports Platinum Award’ at the Airports Council International Awards in 2017.
