There are only 2 main hospitals located in the Northern Territory city of Darwin and both of them are located in the city’s northern suburb of Tiwi. These two hospitals are located right next to each other and deal with nearly all of the surgical, medical and health care needs of the Northern Territory community. At the Royal Darwin Hospital and the Darwin Private Hospital patients will be able to make the most of a wide range of everyday and specialty services in order to ensure that their health is well looked after.
Due to the fact that the only two major hospitals in Darwin are located in the far northern reaches of the city there is not very many hotels, motels or serviced apartments located within walking distance. However, the city of Darwin is a relatively easy place to get around either by car or public transport, so you will be able to find some hospital accommodation located not too far away. The majority of the accommodation options in Darwin are either located around the Darwin airport precinct, the suburbs of Coconut Grove, Parap and Cullen Bay or the Darwin CBD itself. In any one of these areas patients, visitors, doctors and nurses will be able to find a range of properties that offer everything from budget motels and hotels right through to spacious, self contained 1, 2 and 3 bedroom serviced apartments.
Unfortunately the city of Darwin is well known for having its accommodation booked out on a regular basis and even when there are some rooms available they can be at a very high rate. Therefore it is imperative for you to book your hospital accommodation in Darwin as soon as you possibly can. This is not always possible given that some medical treatments and appointments are made at the last minute, but you should look for an appropriate accommodation option as soon as you know when your treatment will begin.
