It depends on the amount of goods you have to move. A FCL (full container load) is faster and takes between 12 and 15 days.
If you have less than a container load (LCL), transit times are longer as your goods will be combined with other items and may take between 15 and 20 days.
Mindil and Vestey's beaches are the busiest in Darwin. Both often draw crowds to see Darwin's spectacular sunsets. Mindil Beach is famous for the Mindil Beach Sunset Market. It has over 300 stalls offering locally-produced arts and crafts, as well as cuisine to enjoy on the beach as you watch the sun go down.
Weekend beaches that prove popular include Wagait Beach and Dundee Beach. Remember to check safety signs and listen to local advice with regards to swimming in the Northern Territory.

Darwin has a varied and interesting history. The traditional owners of Darwin are the Larrakia (saltwater) people. They established the first trade routes in the area.
Darwin was founded as Palmerston in 1869, although the port has always been called Port Darwin. The city was renamed Darwin in 1911.
On 19 February 1942, Darwin was bombed. The first raids killed more than 243 people. Between February 1942 and October 1943, over 60 air raids over Darwin.
Cyclone Tracy devastated the city in the early hours of Christmas Day 1974. Sixty-six people were killed, with many more injured. Of the city's 43,000 residents, 30,000 evacuated to towns and cities across Australia. The Darwin Reconstruction Commission (DRC) was established after the cyclone to rebuild the city, leading to the Darwin we see today.
There are so many things you need to take into consideration. From organising utilities, arranging pet transport and even changing your address for what seems like an endless list of services and authorities!
Any move can be overwhelming, but working out how to move to rural Australia can be even harder.
