Getting to Darwin


With the Northern Territory serviced by four domestic airlines and four international airlines, it is more convenient to access Darwin than you might think. From late 2024, new Darwin-Singapore flights open up a new one-stop option from Darwin to Europe and Asia via Singapore and makes it easier for visitors from from the UK, Europe and Asia to access the Northern Territory.

With the Place Leaders 2024 Awards and Urban Leaders' Summit commencing on the evening of Wednesday 2 April 2025, any of these flights will have you arriving in Darwin in plenty of time to jump off your plane, check-in to your accommodation, and get onto the water for climate resilient city showcase as seen from a sunset cruise on Darwin Harbour.

​Prices are indicative as accessed from the Qantas / Jetstar website. You can sign-up for the Qantas 'Sales Fares' email alert and receive an update when fares to Darwin are on-sale.
