Darwin is the modern and tropical capital city of Australia's Northern Territory. Set on a harbour twice the size of Sydney's, Darwin is a young and vibrant city which offers year round alfresco living courtesy of its tropical climate. The temperature averages 32°C.
The original inhabitants of Northern Australia, the Aboriginal people, have a word (in one of their 300 languages) describing important meetings and festivities – "corroboree". This ancient tradition of getting together for education or entertainment is continued today in modern meeting facilities across the Territory. These resources, coupled with the famed Territory hospitality and distinctive natural environments, combine to form an extraordinary meeting destination.
As a "must go" destination for most Australians, there really is nowhere else in the world quite like the Top End – its people, its land, and its culture are different. No one goes home quite the same after the experience.
The array of social options available in Darwin ensures that delegates will be able to develop new friendships, as well as fostering old ones. The tropical climate provides opportunities for unusual and different sessions, networking, functions and socialising like nowhere else.
