Darwin Community Forum

For the latest information see the  Secure NT website   and   NT Steps to the New Normal 

Local businesses are adjusting to the 'New Normal', please check with the advertised contact for any updates or changes to an advertised service.

A community forum to allow discussion of the issues and developments in the Darwin area.

Write your contribution here.

Anyone who has seen the changes of the last 20 or 30 years will know how much things can change. With more major developments coming, what will the Darwin of the next 20 years be like.? Inpex and other offshore gas developments, an expanding defense presence, a possible move towards statehood and a changing climate are all on the horizon as we move forwards.

As Darwin grows, will we get it right?
