    What to Expect
    Set your own pace when exploring Darwin by using your hop-on hop-off bus pass to take in the city and choose where you want to disembark. Choose a pass that is good for 24 or 48 hours, according to your schedule. It's a great way to get to know the city, especially if you are short on time.

    The extended tour departs includes East Point Reserve and an additional stop at the Military Museum. The shorter, morning tour stops at several convenient locations around Darwin.

    Discover Darwin's main attractions including Crocosaurus Cove, Doctors Gully, Cullen Bay Marina, Darwin Military Museum and the Waterfront Precinct. You can hop on and off as many times as you like to explore on your own. When you want to continue, simply board the next bus.
