It would have been helpful to be told they don’t run on consecutive days before we purchased the two day ticket. We were only in Darwin for two days. We were left waiting for device on Second day !!

We booked ahead so it was easy to turn up at a stop and get on. great way to get to the main spots of interest and to see what lies between those places. A map is a helpful extra to help one get bearings of a place. Have used hop on hop offs before and would do so again.

Very cordial drivers. The commentary is recorded, but the drivers will answer specific questions. It is very convenient to get on and off at the places you want to visit. We used the 24 hour pass because we did not have two days. You cannot see everything in one day. If you have two days to spare, I would go for the two day pass.

I was attending a conference at the Convention Centre but didn’t want to go home without seeing a bit of the City or Darwin. The bus gave me a really good overview without taking too much time - around one hour all up. Of course you could hop on and off if you wished but I just found the trip really lovely. Great commentary too.
