The Arafura Games return to Darwin in 2019
We are very excited for the return of the Arafura Games to Darwin in 2019.
The Arafura Games Darwin originated as the Arafura Sports Festival in 1991 with a whopping 1500 athletes competing in 7 different sports. It was in 1998 that the name Arafura Games was given and it became a bi-annual event.
The Northern Territory is very proud to be hosting the games and look forward to showcasing our unique arts, culture, history, trade and investment opportunities. It is an event through which friendship, goodwill and understanding between competing nations and the Northern Territory is fostered.
16 sports have been chosen for the 2019 Arafura Games including, Athletics, Table Tennis, Boxing, Football (Soccer), Badminton, Swimming, Tennis, Muay Thai, Sailing, Indoor Volleyball, Beach Volleyball, Weightlifting, Basketball, Hockey, Netball and Sepak Takraw.
