Darwin Convention Centre

Stokes Hill Rd, DARWIN, Northern Territory 0800

Looking to the city from the edge of the Arafura Sea, Darwin Convention Centre is an iconic landmark of Australia's tropical harbour city. Its waterfront setting is quite befitting. To the Larrakia people the harbour is a place of connection where, for centuries, they have welcomed visitors while trading with other indigenous tribes and Southeast Asian neighbours.

Nature, architecture and technology converge in this waterfront venue to provide not only the finest facilities but also to create the ideal environment for successful and memorable events. Ringside views of Darwin's serene seascapes amidst a "harbour city within a city" complete the sense of occasion at this world-class venue. The first purpose-built convention centre in Darwin City, the Centre's role is to provide a venue of international standing, attracting prestigious events from Australia and the world.

The Darwin Convention Centre spans a total floor area of 22,900sqm offering a wide selection of conference, exhibition and function facilities for 10 to 4,000 delegates.

  • The Auditorium seats 1,500 with writing tablets and can be divided into two equal spaces
  • Waterfront Rooms cater for up to 630 delegates theatre style or 420 banquet style and can be divided into three spaces

Absolutely delicious, beautifully packaged...

Fudge by Rich As always, absolutely delicious with amazing feedback from all who tried the product! Beautifully packaged up for us, delivery process fast and reliable, and Nicole couldn't have been more helpful in turning around such a large order on such short notice ensuring we had everything needed for the trade show... Think I have a new favourite flavour too, the Rocky Road is to die for!!

Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach

What a professional events team...

Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach "The events team at Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach are truly professionals at what they do. The organisation in particular of the banquets team - always so helpful and ensure that our seminars run smoothly. The only minor suggestion that I would make is more labels to indicate the types salads and sandwiches that are on offer on lunch buffets."

Rendezvous Grand Hotel Melbourne

Really good quality & great value... best external meeting venue in a while!

Rendezvous Grand Hotel Melbourne "The room was appropriately presented, with everything we had requested already in place. Morning tea and lunch were more than ample, and was 'yummy'! Really good quality and great value for money. One of the managers even said it’s been the best external meeting venue he’s been to in a while."


The venue, as well as the staff, location & atmosphere was second to none!

Dockside "We held our Staff Christmas party at Dockside this year - the venue, as well as the staff, location & atmosphere was second to none. From the moment I booked the venue, the service was fantastic. The event organiser kept in contact throughout the year, reminding when things needed to be done. Everything went smoothly on the night of the party, the food was amazing, the staff were excellent & the event manager on the night bent over backwards to help with...
