Darwin Festival Thumb

Darwin Festival

Held over 18 days and nights, Darwin comes alive with the buzz and excitement of the festival, which celebrates Darwin’s energetic arts and cultural community.
Featuring both local and international acts, the Darwin Festival promises an eclectic range of entertainment.

The Darwin Festival began in 1977, as a way to support the community through the devastating effects of Cyclone Tracy. Today, the festival represents Darwin and the indigenous and multi-cultural population. The festival takes advantage of Darwin’s dry season weather, and offers something for everyone to enjoy, whether that be concerts, film, workshops music, visual art, comedy or cabaret. The festival is not to miss!

A great way to discover the Darwin Festival and the Top End is through the flexibility of a campervan. Accommodation in hotels and house rentals can be hard to come by, restricting and expensive. With many holiday parks within Darwin a motorhome or campervan is an ideal way to take in the festival and then travel south and explore the top with places such as Kakadu, Katherine and Litchfield Park a stone’s throw away.

There are plenty of Camper locations that provide powered sites, and you will join a community full of trail-blazing travellers. Many campervans offer double beds, all-inclusive kitchens, bathrooms and plenty of room to feel comfortable and enjoy your stay in the Top End.
