Getting to the Venue

BASSINTHEGRASS is just a 20 minute stroll from the CBD. If walking's not your thing, a taxi or Uber will cost you about $10 or jump on the free bus using the urban network (just show the driver your ticket). You'll will be dropped near the beach and met by thousands of Darwin revellers entering the festival. To plan your journey, view bus timetables here.

Drop off and pick up points are well marked (or just ask a local). After BASS, there are free public buses back to the city for an extended night of celebrating (or to your hotel for a good night’s sleep before continuing your Darwin adventure the next day).
