Darwin's Sister Cities

City of Darwin has been an active participant in the Sister City Movement since establishing its first joint agreement with Kalymnos in Greece in 1982.

Since the inaugural Kalymnos signing, other agreements have been sealed with cities and communities as diverse as Anchorage in Alaska, Ambon in Indonesia, Haikou in China, Milikapiti in the Territory's Tiwi Islands, and Dili in Timor Leste.
