The well-known event also boosts tourism, supports local business and showcases the vibrant city of Darwin on a national stage.
We are transforming Darwin CBD into a world-class tourist and cultural destination, creating jobs for Territorians and supporting local business, and the Supercar activation of the city is part of that transformation.
Thank you to the volunteers who make the Darwin round an incredible success each year. It was fantastic to see this years crew recognised as the Virgin Australia Best Volunteer Group at the 2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship Series Awards.
