The Terminal is definitely designed with the visiting cruise ship passengers in mind, whereas the Wharf caters for those looking for a stroll, a meal and a fresh sea breeze.

As part of the overall development of the Darwin waterfront, the terminal includes facilities for passenger queuing, immigration, customs, quarantine and baggage collection.

This is a modern air-conditioned terminal with covered walkway, plenty of car parking and public amenities in an attractive landscaped setting.

The terminal is large enough to accommodate a mini-market of Darwins products that are naturally of interest to cruise ship passengers.


Helicopter flights from the terminal to the spectacular waterfalls and national parks of the Top End are available from North Australian Helicopters.

Darwin is a popular destination. Passenger numbers from cruise ships increased steadily from 2007 to 2015 and there are an increasing number of visits scheduled for 2016.
