Reasons you’ll love to live in Darwin
A beach on the CBD doorstep
Mindil Beach is located near Darwin’s town centre and is part of the waterfront area which has several beaches and green spaces for activities. You can find the Sunset Markets there during the dry season. Also along the waterfront is Skycity, Darwin’s casino hotel featuring restaurants, bars and pools and a day spa.
Alive with festivals, art and history
Also on the waterfront is the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, displaying extensive collections including indigenous and rock art, fossils and the region’s seafaring history. Experience an interactive war history curation at the Darwin Military Museum. Darwin Festival in August and Bass in the Grass in May are yearly highlights.
The George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens are 2 kilometres north of the CBD. Situated on 42 hectares, the gardens are known for their northern Australian and other tropical plant species. Bicentennial Park is in the city centre, which runs the length of the waterfront and overlooks stunning Darwin Harbour.
A timeless wonder is your backyard
Darwin is the gateway to world heritage listed Kakadu National Park. The almost 20,000 hectares is a biodiverse-rich nature reserve made up of wetlands, rivers, waterfalls and sandstone cliffs. Kakadu is home to around 2,000 plant and wildlife species.
Darwin suburb guide
- Darwin is smallest of Australia’s capital cities with a population of around 145,000 (June 2016).
- The smaller population and long freight distances mean higher prices for many goods. Locally grown produce is available in some areas as a supermarket alternative.
- The median weekly personal income for people aged 15 years and over is $1,052. The most common occupations include professionals, technicians and tradespeople, clerical and administrative, community and personal service, and managers.
- Darwin (and the NT generally) is one of Australia’s most culturally diverse places in Australia and celebrates 100 nationalities and around 50 social, cultural and religious organisations.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do WridgWays use accredited Darwin removalists?
Here at WridgWays, we only employ Darwin removalists who are accredited by the Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA). As not all moving services in Australia use AFRA accredited removalists, this is an important distinction to have.
With Darwin removalists accredited by AFRA, you can rest assured that they have the necessary equipment, vehicles, premises, and training required for local removals. Every AFRA accredited removalist understands the procedures involved in packing and transporting furniture and household goods.
AFRA removalists are the most qualified people in Australia for local removals.
How do you plan on protecting my large items such as furniture and mattresses during transit?
Our Darwin removalists will ensure your belongings are protected by using specialised protective materials, such as furniture pads, blankets, and export wrapping, so your belongings are safe during handling and transportation.
We also use VIP plastic covers to protect any fabric furniture from becoming soiled, and breathable fabric blankets to prevent your leather furniture from sweating. If you’re moving electronic equipment such as a television or speakers, our Darwin removalists will use specially-designed boxes to ensure safe transport and storage of your fragile items.
If you choose to pack your own items, just remember that they may not be covered under your insurance policy during transport. Please refer to the exclusions and limitations in the WridgWays Removal and Storage Insurance brochure for more information
Once you arrive at your new home, your WridgWays Darwin removalists will then carefully unwrap and unpack your furniture and other belongings and place them where you request.
Can I pack the boxes myself, and what are the implications involved with this?
Yes, you can certainly pack your own boxes, but you need to take precautions if you do so. Make sure you avoid packing with used boxes that previously contained food or plant matter.
Our Darwin removalists can also help recommend boxes that are specifically designed for moving, including book cartons that will prevent your books from folding or tearing. They can also provide a range of specialist packing boxes for all of your belongings.
Is it necessary to dismantle all my furniture beforehand?
Our Darwin removalists are always prepared to dismantle furniture and carry the necessary equipment with them. However, they will require you to dismantle certain items before moving day, including swing sets, cubby houses, and built-in fixtures.
If you do need any help with these items though, our Darwin removalists will be more than happy to offer you a disassembly service. Chat to one of our WridgWays moving consultants for a quote on this additional service.
Am I allowed to leave the house when the removalists are packing up my home?
On moving day, our Darwin removalists require you, or a representative over the age of 18, to be present for the entire process.
We also need someone to direct the moving crew while unpacking at your new home. This is to ensure your belongings are placed exactly where you want them to go.
If my new house isn’t ready yet can you organise storage for me?
Yes, our Darwin removalists can easily provide you with the storage solutions to suit your needs.
With state-of-the-art storage facilities and the latest security innovations, your belongings will be safe and secure for as long as you need them to be. We provide both long-term and short-term options.
