DARWIN & THE TOP END & SURROUNDING AREAS: MAPS

Rugged landscapes and awesome iconic natural attractions are all within a half-day drive from Darwin.

Many visitors join wilderness safaris and fishing tours to visit the more remote areas, and both Kakadu and Litchfield can be seen on a pre-booked tour.

Most national parks are readily accessible by car, and you may choose to hire a vehicle and go exploring on your own.

Whilst we are happy to provide you with the following selection of maps, to help you plan your trip to Darwin and the Top End, we would also like to provide the following driving and safety tips.

Safety Tips

Please Note: Road conditions and driving hazards encountered in the Northern Territory are unique and completely different to the home environments of most visitors. Driving around Australia’s Top End can take you into remote areas, and touring many of these routes can cause hardship on your vehicle. Take the necessary steps to be prepared, including having your vehicle thoroughly checked by an expert, who knows the conditions, before you set out on your adventure.

Overseas Visitors: always drive on the left-hand side of the road.

Seat Belts: all passengers must wear them, it’s the law!

Long Distance and Fatigue: It is important to STOP and REST at least every two hours when driving long distances, this will reduce driver fatigue and the chance of having an accident. If possible, take a walk, drink some water and change drivers during break periods.

Speed: There is no speed limit on open roads in the Northern Territory, we recommend that you drive at a reasonable speed and be prepared for the unexpected, like changed road conditions, wandering animals and large road-trains.

Road Conditions: can change rapidly in the Northern Territory, particularly during the wet season (December to March), when water can flow over the roads and create driving hazards.

Visit: www.roadreport.nt.gov.au or free call 1800 246 199 for valuable road reports and information.

Remote Areas

Safety First: Tell a reliable person where you are traveling to, what route you are taking and what your estimated time of arrival is. Confirm with them when you have arrived.

Water: Always carry and consume water to avoid dehydration. Allow 20 litres per person for two days traveling and the expectation of breakdowns.

Fuel: Ensure you have enough so you are not stranded between refueling points.

Emergencies: In case of an emergency or breakdown, stay with your vehicle and stay in the shade.
