The hub of northern Australia has one of the strongest investment and growth forecasts in the country. It's a regional centre for energy and minerals with prosperous agribusiness, marine, tourism, and defence industries. As Australia's gateway to Asia, Darwin City has strategic access to the world's most exciting new economies.
But what makes Darwin a compelling place is that aside from a thriving business climate, it also cultivates an enviable "people climate".
Darwin is a place that welcomes and values people of every kind. Its population of over 100,000 is comprised of 50 nationalities.
Indigenous Australians are a vital presence in the life of the city; the Larrakia have a unique place in the community as the acknowledged traditional custodians of Darwin and their art and culture are thriving in the city.

Darwin Convention Centre
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.
