Venue and Accommodation

Welcome to Darwin

The 13th National Rural Health Conference will be held at the Darwin Convention Centre, Stokes Hill Road, Darwin, in the Northern Territory.  Located on the edge of the Arafura Sea, the Darwin Convention Centre is an iconic landmark in Australia's tropical harbour city.

The Centre's waterfront setting is impressive and there is cultural significance in having a national meeting on the site: 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.
