There’s no better time to visit the tropical north of Australia than during Darwin Festival each August, when Australia’s hottest winter arts festival takes over.

Darwin Festival celebrates the quintessential spirit and energy of the Top End, transforming the city with outdoor concerts and eateries for 18 dazzling days and nights. Combining warm open-air festivities with a program rich in local, national and international talent, Darwin Festival features the very best and brightest stars of cabaret, comedy, theatre, music, dance, visual arts and much more.

Relax under starry night skies in the Festival Park hub, situated in the heart of the Darwin CBD, and wander through unique bamboo food stalls and bars, savouring a taste of the Territory and soaking up the friendly Festival atmosphere.

Join in the fun of hot August nights at Darwin Festival from 4-21 August 2022 while exploring all that the Northern Territory’s Top End has to offer during the day, with some of the exclusive Darwin Festival Packages now available.
