Darwinbus - Darwin



Darwin is very well served by public transport in the form of its bus services called Darwinbus. The various routes service most areas that tourists would wish to get to. The fare system is very cheap and generous, a ticket will get you three hours of unlimited travel, so it is possible to undertake some returns journeys (i.e. go to the place, visit and return) within a single ticket.

Full Fare: Au$2.00
An adult fare entitles passengers to unlimited bus travel for (3) three hours on any scheduled public bus service in Darwin and Alice Springs from the time of purchase. A full fare ticket can be purchased on the bus and at Interchanges.
