Tropical Waterfront

The Darwin Convention Centre is the spectacular centrepiece of the picturesque Darwin Waterfront Precinct.

This vibrant lifestyle precinct offers high quality accommodation, upmarket shops and eateries, stylish boutiques; along with sheltered sandy beach, wave lagoon pool, pleasant walkways and lush parklands – all on the doorstep of the Convention Centre.

The Waterfront Precinct hosts many lively events and festivals on weekends; and is also a popular spot for exercise. The Centre overlooks Darwin Harbour, which is active with commercial and leisure craft year-round.

The beautiful resort-like setting, blue sunny skies and the leisurely Darwin ambience all help to take delegates away from the usual hustle and bustle of big cities. Instead delegates find themselves more relaxed with more space to think and concentrate on the conference agenda at hand.

The serene waterfront setting enables delegates to combine business with leisure and pleasure. Head out for a morning walk and soak up the views, do yoga in the park, take a swim in the recreation lagoon or your own hotel pool.

The excellent selection of alfresco cafes, restaurants and bars overlooking the scenic water views are ideal for connecting and networking or simply unwinding at the end of the working day.

The Darwin Waterfront is located within a short leisurely walk of the City and is easily accessible via the elevated ‘Sky Bridge’.
