Darwin, in the Northern Territory, is one of Australia’s premier business event destinations. Here are five reasons you should consider this fantastic Top End city for your next event.

1) Darwin Convention Centre: A world-class venue

Managed by leading venue management company ASM Global, Darwin Convention Centre is an outstanding events space. It provides world-class facilities for events including major conferences and conventions, meetings and seminars, gala dinners and award ceremonies.

As one of Australia’s premier business event venues, Darwin Convention Centre has built a reputation for delivering outstanding events, first-class food and excellent customer service.

The building spans 23,000 square metres and offers flexible event spaces, including a 1200-seat tiered auditorium (which divides into two), 4000 square metres of column-free exhibition halls (which can divide into three), 225 exhibition booth spaces, and seven concurrent meeting spaces.

Darwin Convention Centre is in the heart of the city’s beautiful Waterfront Precinct.

The venue’s cuisine comprises fresh local produce – including wild barramundi, premium beef, exotic fruits and seasonal vegetables – and is inspired by the Top End’s tropical locale with strong South-East Asian influences, all presented beautifully for your delegates’ enjoyment, with exceptional service to match.

Other food offerings include optional tailor-made menus and Darwin Convention Centre’s signature Seven Seasons dining experience. Inspired by the Gulumoerrgin (Larrakia) seasonal calendar, this unique culinary journey invites guests to experience the dramatic changes of its seven seasons and the impact these changes have on local sights, sounds, landscape and natural habitat.

This seasonal journey goes beyond food, offering vision and sound elements to create a full sensory immersion of Aboriginal culture.

2) The beautiful Darwin Waterfront Precinct

Darwin Convention Centre is the spectacular centrepiece of the picturesque Darwin Waterfront Precinct and offers harbour views and large outdoor spaces in a tropical setting.

This vibrant lifestyle precinct boasts wonderful accommodation, upmarket shops, alfresco cafes, stylish boutiques, a sheltered sandy beach, wave lagoon pool, pleasant walkways and lush parklands on the doorstep of Darwin Convention Centre.

Darwin Waterfront Precinct hosts festivals and events throughout the year and is a popular spot for exercise. Darwin Convention Centre overlooks Darwin Harbour, which is active with commercial and leisure craft all year round.

The serene resort-like waterfront setting, blue sunny skies and leisurely Darwin ambience take delegates away from the hustle and bustle of big cities into a relaxed, welcoming space where they can combine business with leisure.

Visitors can head out for a morning walk and soak up the views, do yoga in the park, or enjoy a swim in the recreation lagoon or hotel pool.

Darwin Waterfront Precinct is located just a short walk from Darwin CBD and is easily accessible via the elevated Sky Bridge.

4) Enjoy authentic cultural experiences

Well known for its rich Aboriginal culture, delegates conferencing in this vibrant harbour city can connect with the Larrakia people – the Traditional Owners of the Darwin region – through a cultural performance or an Indigenous cultural workshop that can be incorporated into any event.
