I am wondering about the use of "Not only, but too" instead of "Not only, but also.? For example:

The candidates campaigned not only in Perth but in Darwin too.

and is it formal to use it?

Idiomatically:

The candidates campaigned not only in Perth but also in Darwin.

The candidates campaigned not only in Perth but in Darwin, too.

Note the position of the adverbs.

    To be clear, also can also go at the end, but too HAS to be at the end
