Smith Street Mall

The Mall is the central shopping precinct in Darwin City. A diverse mix of retail and food outlets entice customers throughout the day. Colourful pathways guide pedestrians through a streetscape of stone-lined garden beds, cultural monuments, and artistic mosaics.

City of Darwin provides many services to The Mall that offer benefits to event organisers - see the site map.

There are public toilets, free public Wi-Fi, ample power including 3-phase power and an audio broadcast facility. There are also designated performance spaces for buskers.

Three large shade structures compliment large trees within The Mall and work to cool the area and provide shelter from the weather.

The large shade structure at the Bennett Street end is a popular event space and often accommodates a stage, musicians, or dance troupe.

At the other end of The Mall, Raintree Park offers a cool and shady area with a convenient balance of green space and pavement. At night, hundreds of fairy lights line the trees to create a magical environment.

Conveniently located near public transport, a taxi rank and West Lane Car Park, the Smith Street Mall is a popular event space. Event organisers are advised to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
