Discover Darwin’s most colourful festivalDarwin, Northern Territory

Splashes of colour, quirky characters and hyper-realistic animals are set to take over the pavements, laneways and buildings of the NT capital when the Darwin Street Art Festival kicks off on 14 September.

Now in its fourth year, the must-see, seven-day festival has quickly developed into one of the city’s most popular events. While this year will no doubt look a little bit different (thanks for nothing, Covid-19), some of the best Aussie street artists are already confirmed and have been working hard to whip up their magical designs.

Attendees can expect to see more than 45 murals and 13 augmented reality pieces by the likes of PRESSPlay, Pennyrose Wiggins, Cindy May and Jason Lee. An exciting new addition to the festival line-up this year is Wall Season, which involves 10 local artists beautifying blank spaces with their mind-blowing masterpieces – plus, it’s a chance to see these incredible creators up close and hard at work.

There’s also a newly released app to download, which features an interactive map, artist descriptions and a screen record function. It’s the perfect companion for a day of roaming Darwin’s vibrant streets.
