Australian Archaeological Association Conference

1 – 3 December 2021



Visiting Darwin

The Northern Territory is one of the most popular visitor destinations in Australia. People come to see and enjoy the ancient Aboriginal culture and a multitude of natural and cultural treasures.

Darwin is the gateway to the Australian Outback. It is home to some of the country’s best tourism experiences. Progressive and vibrant, Darwin is a breath of fresh air, irresistible to potential delegates. This location will always encourage high attendance.

The Northern Territory is home to the largest number of Indigenous Australians per capita. It has extensive experience in a wide range of indigenous matters including health, education, training and business development.



  • Darwin enjoys a year-round tropical climate averaging 30°C (86ºF).
  • From December to March, Darwin experiences a tropical summer, known as the ‘wet season’. It is the ideal time to see the Northern Territory at its greenest, enjoying secluded waterholes, cool waterfalls and billabongs teeming with exotic wildlife.
  • Summer clothing is worn year-round, with a light jumper, cardigan or jacket required occasionally in air-conditioned spaces.
  • Casual clothes are a mark of Darwin lifestyle but smarter attire is expected in offices, hotels and restaurants.
