Tullamarine Airport to Darwin, NT Airport (DRW-Darwin Intl.) Flying Tips

How to survive a long flight:

  • There's nothing as nice as sipping on a merlot when you're high above the clouds, but water is much better for you on a long flight. You can avoid feeling tired and cranky when you step off the plane.
  • Whether you prefer an aisle, a window or an exit seat, choosing the right spot will have an impact on your in-flight experience. Think about what's important to you, like a good window view or being able to wander around.
  • Eating healthy while travelling isn't easy. And when you do find a bite that's nutritious at the airport it's usually pretty exxy. Take your own healthy goodies from your kitchen pantry and do your wallet and waistline a favour.
  • Here’s your chance to catch up on that new television show people can't stop talking about. Download several episodes, stick on your noise-cancelling headphones and enjoy a little binge-watching.
  • Don't get on that plane without a neck pillow. No matter your preferred sleeping position, you'll find plenty of interesting designs that'll help send even the most restless flyer off to dreamland.

What to wear on a long flight:

  • Natural fabrics are the best things to wear. Bring along your favourite jumper and wear a pair of flat, roomy shoes. That way, you'll be warm and comfy throughout the entire journey.
  • Even if you're in the midst of a movie marathon, don't stay cooped up in your seat the whole journey. Stand up and roam around the cabin, or at least put on some compression socks. These things will improve your circulation and lessen your risks of developing deep vein thrombosis.
