Ship to Shore

The Ship to Shore walking tour is perfect for cruise ship passengers seeking a short shore excursion.

This 2-hour walking tour will uncover the hidden treasures of Darwin city, to then allow further exploration at your leisure.

The relaxed walk starts at the Cruise Ship Terminal and departure time is dependent on the scheduled arrival time of each ship.

Hear of WWII bombings and Cyclone Tracy and discover many of the remaining buildings such as the old Court House and Police Station, Browns Mart and the Old Palmerston Town Hall ruins, all of which have been painstakingly reconstructed. Pass by Government House, Parliament House and the Supreme Court on your journey through the streets of this modern tropical city. Along the way, your guide will share their passion for the town they call home.

Your tour will conclude near the Visitor Information Centre where shuttle buses depart regularly for the journey back to your ship, or you can walk back to the cruise ship terminal along the Smith Street pathway.
