Approximately half the Northern Territory population live within a 50 kilometer radius of Darwin.

The Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair is unique in that it provides a genuine opportunity to purchase artwork directly from over sixty Indigenous owned community Art Centres, whilst being immersed in an exciting program of traditional dance, workshops, film, fashion and music.

‘The soul of Darwin’: the centenary of the Kahlin Compound – In 1913 the NT Protector of Aborigines, Baldwin Spencer decided with a stroke of his pen to solve what he called the ‘half-caste problem’ by rounding up Aboriginal children and removing them from the ‘native camps’. The Kahlin Compound and Half Caste Home was established at Myilly Point, overlooking Mindil Beach in Darwin. The oldest survivors share their stories.
