Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival

The pinnacle of Top End racing is the Great Northern Darwin Cup.

It takes a little over two minutes to run, a dedicated team a year to plan and is the crescendo of a stunning eight-day Carnival. The iconic Great Northern Darwin Cup is truly the largest sporting and social event in the Northern Territory.

The day is broadcast to over 40 nations and will see a crowd of 20,000 revellers converge on Fannie Bay for a day of fashion, entertainment and unsurpassed hospitality. In 2019, the Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival is being billed as the ‘Carnival of Colour’ and Darwin City will be awash in vivid bright tones when Carnival fever grips.

Save the date: Great Northern Darwin Cup will be held on Monday 3rd August, 2020
