Getting Around Darwin
BASSINTHEGRASS is just a 20 minute stroll from the CBD. If walking’s not your thing, a taxi or Uber will cost you about $10 or jump on the free BASS bus using the Urban Network to get to Mindil Beach.
Drop off and pick up points at the venue are well marked. After BASS, there are free public buses back to the city to continue the good times (or back to your hotel for a good night’s sleep if you’re BASSed out) .
