Townsville, QLD Airport (TSV) to Darwin, NT Airport (DRW-Darwin Intl.) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Keep your body hydrated — this is a sensible way to beat feeling weary after you touch down.
  • Whether you prefer an aisle, a window or an exit seat, picking the right spot will have a large impact on your flight experience. Carefully consider what matters to you, like sleeping or being able to easily move around.
  • Keep your belly satisfied. Healthy snacks like trail mix, fruits and sliced veggies are great to nibble on in between meals.
  • Take your own entertainment like magazines and a book. If you get bored of the in-flight shows, you'll have some other options to last you through the trip.
  • Invest in a good travel pillow. No matter your preferred sleeping position, you'll find loads of innovative designs that'll help send even the most anxious traveller off to the Land of Nod.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • Don't let those jet-setting celebs hoodwink you into thinking tight jeans or towering heels are a wise outfit choice. Choose comfy clothes like loose shirts and wide-leg pants. Also consider wearing shoes like slip-on footwear or joggers.
  • Take advantage of the times when the seat belt light has been switched off and go for a walk down the aisle. Stretching your legs will encourage blood circulation and lessen the risks of a potentially-deadly blood clot condition known as deep vein thrombosis. You can also invest in a pair of compression socks.

                                        The King Room with Harbour View had a lovely view, it was very clean and appreciate the aircon in the Darwin heat.
