Welcome to Darwin and the Top End of Australia’s Northern Territory. I cherish the multicultural and cosmopolitan city we live in today – Darwin is a tropical, liveable city that creates opportunity and choice for our community.
Darwin was destroyed and rebuilt during the 1940s, and then again following Cyclone Tracy in 1974. These parts of our history have helped shape our people and our community to become strong and capable, connected, spirited and determined.
Our defence people do tremendous work for our country and as our city has embraced our defence personnel, we hope in turn you embrace the city and all it has to offer. We are a culturally rich city where we enjoy our entertainment, cafes and restaurants, and our fabulous and famous local markets.
City of Darwin prides itself on the services it offers our community. We have three public swimming pools, four libraries and three community centres. We offer many programs for families including story time sessions at our libraries, outdoor activities for kids during school holidays and many community events. We encourage all new arrivals to enjoy Darwin and make the most of your time here.
Council’s website is where you can find out about community events as well as by following us on Facebook and Twitter. Welcome to the Darwin family, we look forward to enjoying your company.
Lord Mayor of Darwin
