Hot August Nights
The 2020 Darwin Festival runs from 6-23 August. Start planning your HOT AUGUST NIGHTS!
A city of contrasts and extremes, Darwin is situated at the top of Australia on the doorstep of the world heritage-listed Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park and Uluru. Darwin Festival celebrates the best of the north Australian lifestyle, taking place across 18 warm, temperate days and nights in outdoor venues designed for relaxing.
Escape the August winter for some hot tropical fun! Come and see how this small city has dialled up the cool and transformed into a hip and fun capital while retaining its unique, old-school charm. It’s time you visited Darwin.
Getting to Darwin is an easy three to four hour flight from most Australian capital cities. Darwin is also closer to Asia than any other capital city in Australia, with many international routes from neighbouring countries.
Once you’ve had your fill of the Top End (believe us, you may never want to leave!), consider flying home or onto your next adventure with Qantas – the Official Airline Partner of Darwin Festival.
Unique Territory dining experiences, a buzzing markets scene, heroic outdoor adventures, an epic coastline from which to worship spectacular sunsets, and of course, a fantastic arts scene! Our friends below are in the know.
Make Darwin Festival your gateway to the Northern Territory and Australia. Aside from the many and varied croc experiences you can expect from a visit to the Top End (a must do!) our friends at Tourism Top End have sniffed out some of the other best ways to experience the culture and landscape of this unique part of the world.Plan your itinerary
