Darwin to Dundee Transfers or nearby

Post by jasbags » Wed Feb 03, 2010 3:14 pm

Hi all

We are coming up to NT from SA in April and one of my mates is flying in from Singapore. Our first stop will be Dundee Beach.

Does anyone know of any transfers between Darwin airport and dundee?? If not Dundee, anywhere close by?

If there is nothing of this sort available, does anyone know of any bus services that could possibly drop him off near Noonamah or somewhere like that before the turn-off from the highway?

In short, we are just looking to see if there is anyway to avoid driving all the way into Darwin to pick him up!! :)

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Cheers / Jason

Definitely no bus services that I know of head out to Dundee... I imagine you could get a taxi but would cost a fortune! Best bet would be to see if anyone from here is heading down that way on the day he gets in and ask for a lift? Better hope its a weekend though and early in the morning...

He shouldn't have too much trouble getting to Noonamah or Berry Springs if you can get him from there?

Cheers
Moonman!

Could he get a hire car (4WD) at the airport and a map to get him to Dundee? It will be an eye opener for him :grin:

Hi Jasbags, why not send Geoff Corry an email or PM. He runs a guide operation out there and you may be lucky and find he has to transport a person/group from Darwin that day, and may have a spare seat??

thanks for all the replys guys......my mate is arriving early on Sunday 18th. We are driving from Alice on Sunday morning so won't get into Darwin until the evening.

I might give that guide a call to see if he has a car running with any spare seats.

Thanks again / Jason

Are you paying for accomodation down there? If so, speak to the operator and explain your situation. They might be able to bring him out when they have to go to town or get him put on one of thier deliveries.

A carton of p!ss as payment works wonders for favours like that up here, well it used to. :idea:
