Darwin Conferences & Events



Treat your tastebuds and indulge your sense of fun and adventure in the Northern Territory’s tropical capital city. From the sparkling harbour and WWII history to the city’s Asian-influenced food and tropical outdoor lifestyle, Darwin is an events destination that has so much to offer!

Home to a tropical climate, Darwin’s wet season is from November to April. So for the best conditions for outdoor activities, visit Darwin during its dry season (May to October).
