Cullen Bay Guide

Cullen Bay offers a relaxing waterside setting just two kilometres away from the city centre of Darwin. Sealink services offer sailings north to Wurrumiyanga three times a week, with the crossing taking two and a half hours.

What is there to do in Cullen Bay?
Some of the most critically acclaimed restaurants in the area are located in the marina with stunning harbourside vistas to accompany the delicious local delicacies or even a casual drink. Moving away from the marina there is a huge amount for visitors to do. The tropical Timor Sea waters off the rugged peninsula coast provide the perfect spot for fishing and Mindil Beach is the ideal place to watch the beautiful Australian sunset. The Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Darwin Botanic Gardens and Crocosaurus Cove are also hugely popular attractions.

How do I get to the port?
Due to its location at the northern end of the long Stuart Highway, the port can also be easily reached from almost anywhere in the Northern Territories, including the desert town of Alice Springs over 900 miles south. The Darwin International Airport, the main gateway into the city is just fifteen minutes from the marina too.

What services run from the port
The ferry terminal in Cullen Bay is a compact building found by the narrow sea entrance of the marina, at the far end of a palm-lined boulevard. Facilities are limited to an undercover seating area, a few vending machines, and a small-scale car park. At present only one route operates from the port. A Sealink service sails northwards to the rural community of Wurrumiyanga on the sparsely inhabited Tiwi Islands, a voyage that skates past Fannie Bay and crosses the shallow Timor sea. The crossing is two and a half hours long and runs three times weekly.
