Changes to Parking and Roadworks at Darwin International Airport – 16 May 2022

The 2-minute express drop off/pick up zones at Darwin Airport have changed to immediate set down/pick up only. Vehicles will not be able to wait for passengers in these zones. Free 15-minute parking continues to be available in the short-term car park. We recommend all travellers allow additional time to travel to and from the airport.

Pick Up & Drop Off

Darwin International Airport has designated areas to pick up and drop off passengers.

An express lane for a quick drop off is available close to the front of the terminal. A two-minute time limit applies in this lane and drivers must remain with their vehicles at all times.

If you’re staying a little longer, the Short Stay Car Park provides 15 minutes FREE parking. Just collect a ticket when entering the car park and if you leave within 15 minutes, there will be no charge.

How do I get my 15 minutes free?

Take a ticket from the car park entry station, and exit within 15 minutes by putting the same ticket into the exit station. There is no need to validate your ticket at a Pay Station in the terminal if you exit within 15 minutes.

If you stay over 15 minutes, you will need to make a payment for your parking at a pay station or by credit card at the exit station.
