Darwin Convention Centre
Stokes Hill Road, Darwin, NT 0800

Looking to the city from the edge of the Arafura Sea, Darwin Convention Centre is an iconic landmark of Australia's tropical harbour city.

Its waterfront setting is quite befitting. To the Larrakia people the harbour is a place of connection where, for centuries, they have welcomed visitors while trading with other indigenous tribes and Southeast Asian neighbours.

Darwin Convention Centre is a multi-awarded venue with experienced, dedicated, and enthusiastic professionals committed to making any event the best it can be.
