Previously known as a laid back frontier town, Darwin has evolved into a highly urbanised capital city with an abundance of hotels and resorts suited to hosting memorable and unique conferences and events. With its year-round warm tropical climate, Darwin offers a casual atmosphere sure to have delegates in a relaxed and productive frame of mind.
In the thriving CBD, Mantra offers two luxury Darwin conference venues, Mantra on the Esplanade and Mantra Pandanas catering for 50 delegates and 140 delegates respectively. Both Mantra hotels are perfectly positioned only a stroll away from the main shopping precinct, beautiful Darwin Harbour, Darwin Entertainment Centre and the many Museums and Art Galleries. Darwin Airport is only 20 minutes by car.
Darwin City is also the perfect launching pad to the Northern Territory’s vast array of extraordinary natural landscapes and ecosystems, from tropical coastlines to heritage wetlands, wildlife parks and escarpment vistas. Natural wonders such as World Heritage-listed Kakadu, Katherine Gorge and Litchfield National Parks are all within driving distance from the city and contain populations of crocodiles, goannas, snakes, wallabies, spectacular birdlife and tropical flora abound. A trip to one of the Northern Territories natural wonders makes for a memorable and unique Northern Territory conference experience.
