Airlines:

NAP suggests that international visitors fly into a major Australian city i.e. Melbourne or Sydney and then travel by air to Darwin. Virgin Blue has the cheapest rates by far (currently as low as $320 return Syd to Dar). For those people who want to fly into Darwin directly, Royal Brunei offer the cheapest international flights and fly from Germany, the UK and most Asian countries to Brunei and you can connect from there to Darwin.
