Hey (domestic) travellers. We’ve landed on quite a nice treat today that we think may pique your interest.

Webjet has announced today (March 10, 2021) that it would be slashing the prices on flights to Darwin – across all airlines – for 72 hours.

What’s the deal with the sale?

There are discounts of up to $100 on flights departing from Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Cairns and Alice Springs. This means you can hop on a plane to Australia’s Top End for as little as $70 one way.

Prices and availability will obviously vary depending on dates, location and flight sales, but whichever way you slice it, this is quite a solid deal.

In a statement on the sale, Webjet writes that “These discounts apply to inbound flights to Darwin that are booked from today, 10 March, until 12 March (or until sold out).”

“After a year of travel restrictions and border closures, Australia’s only tropical capital city is ready and open for travellers who are seeking a different holiday. From its balmy weather, captivating wildlife experiences, rich cultural and historical offerings and a thriving foodie scene, there is no better time to book a Darwin escape.”

There are actually a number of other sweet deals on offer right now for visitors keen on a visit to the Northern Territory.
