You will find COTA NT’s offices and meeting rooms at Spillett House on Smith Street in Darwin’s CBD. We are located next to the Bendigo Bank and opposite Elders Real Estate (a short distance from the Woolworths’ shopping precinct).
Our offices and meeting room are located directly behind the bus stops, two small lawns and sheltered benches on Smith Street. We are clearly identified by our bright orange front door and branded entrance way.
Having reached Darwin CBD, you can reach Spillett House by car either from Smith Street or Shadforth Lane. Using Shadforth Lane gives you access to our car park. Please refer to the map on this page for more details.
We have a small car park adjacent to our building accessible from Shadforth Lane, which is primarily for staff and volunteer usage. Additional parking is available at the Woolworths’ shopping precinct and on the surrounding streets, although local council parking charges apply.
Permits must be displayed inside the windscreen whenever the permit holder is using the vehicle.
If you are using a disability parking permit within the Darwin municipality, your permit allows free on-street parking (where parking meters are installed) in any time-restricted area for twice the period indicated e.g. 3 hours extended to 6 hours.
Once the free parking time has expired, normal parking restrictions apply i.e. paying for parking and time restrictions.
Vehicles displaying disability parking permits may park in an accessible parking bay in all City of Darwin off-street car parks all day, free of charge except for West Lane Carpark and Chinatown Carpark.
Persons displaying a valid permit who park in an accessible parking bay in either West Lane Carpark or Chinatown Carpark may park for twice the time paid for.
