Food & Drink

If you are catering for yourself supermarkets such as Woolworths, Coles and IGA throughout Darwin stock all the fresh and packaged food you will need. You can also buy fresh produce at weekend markets at Parap, Rapid Creek, Nightcliff and Palmerston. Asian fruits, vegetables and foods are readily available.

If you are in homestay accommodation, your host family will provide you with 2 meals per day during the week and 3 meals a day on weekends.

There are lots of places to eat out - from cheap and cheerful to top of the range five star restaurants - serving every type of food imaginable - hot curries, perfect steaks, brunch, vegetarian, halal, exquisite desserts and late night burgers.

If you are planning on entering licensed premises where alcohol is served, you will need identification showing that you are aged 18 or over. You can use your passport or driver licence, or obtain an Evidence of Age card from the Northern Territory Motor Vehicle Registry.
