Important Information:

  • The commercial rate is for events or functions organised by community groups (i.e. non-profit) and not for commercial business houses promoting commercial events/activities.
  • All fees are to be paid in advance of the date that the banner is to be put up. Cancellation during this period will result in the hirer being liable for all charges (Council reserves the right to waive this imposition). The booking is not confirmed until all fees are paid.
  • Should City of Darwin need to remove your banner if you haven’t done so by sunset on the last display date, a release fee may be charged and be payable by the hirer.
  • There is a maximum period of hire, for 3 weeks at any 2x banner sites, or for 2 weeks at any 3x banner sites.
  • Hirer is responsible for placing and removal of their banners.
  • Banner is not to be padlocked to the site.
  • Sponsor advertising including the name and/or logo must not exceed 25% of the total area of the banner.
  • Draft of banner must be submitted for approval.
  • A ladder may be required to assist with the installation of banners at certain sites.
  • The banner must have a rope threaded through the top and bottom of the banner from one end to the other. The rope is needed to ensure the banner is correctly secured and does not fold up, obscuring the message or the banner.
