How to buy a property in Darwin and the Northern Territory?

How to buy a property in Darwin and the Northern Territory

Darwin’s population did grow during the early stages of the pandemic as its Covid-free status meant it wasn’t locked down as much as its southern neighbours.  It’s also one of 3 Australian capitals tipped to defy the national downward property swing and maintain its current pricing.

Darwin’s mean house price at the end of January 2024 was $588,623, a 0.1% increase on December 2022.  Units were averaging $377,003, down -0.5% from the previous month.  Along with Perth, it remains the most affordable city in which to buy a house, and the cheapest to buy a unit.

As with the Australian property market in general, you can purchase privately or via auctions. You can view our Moving to Australia guide for property tips.

What are the pros and cons of moving to Darwin and the Northern Territory?

Pros and cons of living in Darwin and the Northern Territory

Darwin is a great place to live if you don’t mind hot humidity but want the benefits of living in a city without crowds. It offers a quiet, casual, laid-back lifestyle, no traffic jams, friendly (2-legged) residents, and is close to natural wonders like Kakadu National Park.

It’s also Australia’s smallest capital city with only around 150,000 people living there.  And it’s ‘youngest’ demographically with an average population age of just 35.  Additionally, it is the closest Australian capital city to Asia and Europe and is exceptionally multicultural.

Darwin has plenty of festivals, camping spots, fishing, and 4WD adventure spots.  Oh, and beaches BUT this is where we probably should mention one of the Northern Territory’s biggest cons.  It’s a prehistoric relic that managed to survive the K-T extinction event and goes by the scientific name Crocodylidae.  You would know it better by its common name – the crocodile – and it can be found lurking in many of the NT’s waterways, including the beaches!  Pay VERY close attention to the posted warning signs – they’re there for a reason.

Offsetting pro – most Darwin homes have a swimming pool (for obvious reasons), and there are also croc-free public swimming pools.

The steamy climate is another con if you don’t like humidity, and there are only two seasons – wet and dry.  Both are warm to hot.  Darwin is also closer to major Asian capital cities than it is to other Australian ones, which can be a drawback as well.
