Darwin's traditional owners, the Larrakia people, are prominent and active members of the community, and many still adhere closely to their traditional beliefs and customs. Darwin has evolved from its days as an incredibly laid back frontier town and while it still retains its relaxed charm, it has become a highly sophisticated city.

The event is being held at the Darwin Convention Centre, 10 Stokes Hill Rd, Darwin City, NT 0800. This is located in the Darwin waterfront precinct.


Getting Here

It is each delegates responsibility to arrange their own travel to and from Darwin and their accommodation during the conference and workshops.

We have partnered with Tourism Top End to assist with supporting your travel arrangements, being in Darwin and take advantage of having your own Top End experience. Please follow the link below to the dedicated Darwin Welcomes PULiiMA Delegates package.

Getting to the Northern Territory is easy. Darwin is only a three to four hour flight from most Australian capital cities. Qantas, Jetstar, Virgin Australia, Tiger Air and Air North all fly regularly to Darwin.
