If you love warm weather and enjoy living in a relaxed city, Darwin is the place for you. Situated at the Top End of Australia, Darwin is a unique place where a relatively small population enjoys a booming hub of food, arts, and multiculturalism.


There are many reasons to consider a move to the capital city of the Northern Territories, whether it be for the many lucrative jobs on offer or the vibrancy of living within a young community where the average age is 31.


Learn more about the pros and cons of moving to Darwin, and how to best utilise KEYS interstate network for a smooth journey north. 

Practical tips when moving interstate

Making the move to Darwin might conjure up images of crocodiles and humid rainforests, but there is plenty more to the NT than stunning flora and fauna. As a remote city uniquely located close to Asia, the multicultural population brings both economic and social advantages.  


However, this compact population can mean a higher cost of living than you’re used to. Make the transition to the Top End as affordable and seamless as possible with these tips:


  • Clear out any belongings you don’t need
  • Purge your items again before packing to lighten the load!
  • Hold a garage sale for any resellable items
  • Book reliable interstate movers with a trusted reputation
  • Make an itemised list of large items to be transported by KEYS 
  • Place excess items in storage with KEYS in Perth
  • Transfer or cancel all bills and mail
  • Try not to relocate during peak seasons or weekends

Using KEYS interstate network when moving to Darwin

The long trip North from Perth can add a lot of stress to an interstate move. Rather than attempt to make the extensive drive multiple times (yikes!) simply find a renowned removal company with an extensive interstate network.


Bringing in the experts can save you both time and money in situations like this, where KEYS has a fully equipped team and a fleet of robust vehicles to safely load up your belongings in Perth, with approved connections ready to unpack at your new home in Darwin. 


As well as doing the heavy lifting, KEYS can help with additional packing and unpacking requirements, secure storage of additional belongings, and moving large, bulky items across the country. 

The best reasons to move to Darwin

If you were to make pros and cons about moving to Darwin, the cons would likely be the hot and humid weather, remote location, and higher cost of certain items and groceries. 


The pros list, however, is a bit longer. Surrounded by luscious national parks like Kakadu, natural springs, and beautiful wildlife, there’s no shortage of fun and adventure when living in tropical NT. With plenty of jobs in key industries and a world-renowned university, the quality of life in Darwin can be second to none – especially if you visit the infamous Mindil Beach Markets!
