The Darwin Festival

There is simply no better place to experience the heady rush of a festival than Darwin. Truly one of the best tropical cities in the world the town is aflush with colour and excitement as it journeys through 18 nights of art and entertainment that r eflects the Indigenous, Asian and Pacific cultures of the region.

Darwin is a young town bursting with excitement, adventure and an urgency to be recognized and this spirit is embedded in the Festival, with everything from Free Outdoor events, to theatre, dance, music, cabaret, films, workshops and comedy not to mention sensational cuisine!

There are few festivals around the world that can boast the weather that Darwin has and this is what makes it a perfect festival town.

The Festival is representative of the melting pot of cultures that is Darwin,  something which its population takes great pride in sharing with its visitors.

18 nights,  over 70 productions, 112 events and performances and over 1,000 international, national and Territory artists and cultural groups.
