Darwin now has drive through fuel through convenience

Sharing is caring!

As a busy mum, I am always on the lookout for ways to make my life easier and simpler. One of the constant needs in running a household is fuel in the car. But Darwin now has drive through fuel convenience in several locations. Darwin Family Life has done the research and found the locations for you!

I dread seeing that little fuel light come on and having a car full of kids, can you relate? You are then faced with the dilemma of dragging all the kids into and out of the car …..which can be a lot of effort and all those damn tempting chocolate bars right at the cashier. All the kids then want to grab one and say “can we have one Mummy”. Or you leave the kids in the car, lock it and run in to pay like a madwoman because you have left your kids in the car for one minute. Which of course is not really a great option.

Luckily there is now another option!!


Darwin now has a few drive through petrol stations open which brings convenience and ease to the busy Mum – and will keep your sanity. Also a huge bonus the ones we have located are also all open 24 hours!!

Darwin Family Life is pleased to round up all the info for you here right now and share with you the locations of the places you can get pay at the pump fuel. We have found ones located in Darwin City, one in Palmerston and one in the Northern Suburbs, but please let us know with a comment if you have any others we can add to the list and let other Darwin Mums know about them!
