Darwin Convention Centre

The 2019 IAHA National Conference will be held in Darwin, on the beautiful lands of The Larrakia people.  The Larrakia people are the traditional owners of the Darwin region. We pay our respects to their elders past, present and future and thank them for welcoming us onto their lands.

Situated on the edge of a harbour bigger than Sydney’s, Darwin is a beautiful, fascinating tropical city – a melting pot of people and cultures that prides itself in its unique and friendly laid-back lifestyle. While a sophisticated, modern city in its own right, it is also one steeped in history, one that has endured many hardships on its way to establishing itself as the gateway to Asia. It is the home of NT commerce and business and with its world-class natural and cultural attractions it is also a thriving hub of activity in terms of tourism, nightlife and retail.

The Conference will be held at the Darwin Convention Centre, this world class, multi-purpose Convention Centre with its spectacular waterfront location, is only minutes walk to the central business district or a wide choice of city centre hotels and only ten minutes drive to Darwin International Airport.
