Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport
Darwin airport is open 24 hours a day, so you will be able to spend the night inside the enclosure if you have an early flight or if your flight is delayed. It is recommended to have headphones or earplugs, as usually there is movement even at night.
Where to rest: In the boarding area you can find long benches where you can lay down, otherwise you will have to use the floor. On the other hand, the airport's VIP lounges offer more amenities and privacy, although they close at night. About 300 meters away from the terminal there are two hotels for those passengers looking for a better rest.
Baggage: There are lockers in the car parks where you can leave your bags until the next day.
Eating and drinking: Two of the available options remain open throughout the night.
Restrooms: Showers available in the Domestic Departures Hall.
Wi-Fi: The service is free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, commercial stores, baby changing rooms.
The Novotel Darwin Airport and the Mercure Darwin Airport Resort are found 300 meters away from the terminal. Other accommodations in the surroundings provide complimentary shuttles for the transfer of their guests.
