This is your landing page for all information to assist you in coming to Darwin, attending Puliima and making the most of your Top End visit.
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.
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.

PULiiMA: Making Voice
Sunday 18 August @ 1.30-2.30pm
Charles Darwin University
As part of the Darwin Festival, PULiiMA has organised a special panel of speakers from the conference to share their stories with the general public.

DISCOUNT OFFER TO SEE TROY KINGI
PULIiMA 2019 delegates also receive a discount to see Troy Kingi perform at part of the Darwin Festival.
After the backyard blues and psychedelic sci-fi soul of his first two albums, Māori actor and musician Troy Kingi heads across the ditch with a swag of awards and a new record on the way. Expect a hard-hitting early roots reggae sound and powerful lyrics that focus on issues affecting the world’s Indigenous peoples. Kingi will be a recognisable face for those who saw The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, but onstage with a guitar in his hand he’s sure to cast a spell over music lovers.
