    Darwin’s annual arts festival is like no other in Australia.  The Festival, defined by the Top End’s Indigenous cultures and proximity to South-East Asia, is as unique as the city itself.  Festival Park is the heart of the celebration of music, theatre, visual art, dance, cabaret and more. 

    Bamboo food stalls and pop-up bars transform the centre of the city for a precious few weeks every dry season.  Festival goers can be seen at the long communal tables enjoying Darwin’s legendary multicultural food before heading to one of the many venues in the park.

    At the end of the day and you need a place to rest and recharge, we have you covered.
