Dili (East-Timor) to Darwin (Australia) shipping is only possible with container ship. They do not take passengers to these boats, so you need to fly.
This is the only option.

there is a shipping schedule attached from Dili to Darwin. I still haven't got any companions to share the container. The best option is 22/03 Time Spirit but I'm not in time for this. So the next one on 07/04 is more preferable.

Timor Leste - Dili to Darwin Shipping Motorcycles

Ok Guys, here's the wood yet again !

Ocean Freight USD360.00 per motorbike (incl. the BAF)
Container Service Fee USD 60.00 per motorbike
East Timor Tax 2.64% of the freight
Document Collect Charge USD 30.00 per Bill of Lading

The vessel is a barge, you must clean your bike to perfection, you do not have to hire a whole container, your bike will not be considered urgent and delays are common. Bribes in Dili work :-)

Hi

Have you tried Perkins Shipping (may now be called Toll?) In 2011 we wheeled our bikes on, no hassle and no need to fill /pay for a whole 20ft space, you just pay for volume used

Good luck

Thanks Dave! Looks like I need a new battery for my bike. Have you got a email from me already? I'm in Larantuka now. Eastern port of Flores. The last jump to Kupang on Monday.

Sure, I keep in touch with them. The next ship on 22-24 of March. I want to be in time. The only bike cleaning takes a couple of days!
