Darwin Turf Club receives $12 million funding for Multi-purpose Stand
The Northern Territory Government is funding the Darwin Turf Club with a $12 million grant to build a multi-purpose stand, aiming to boost the international tourism appeal of the Darwin Cup Carnival.
Construction of the multi-purpose stand will start immediately after the 2019 Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival and is expected to be ready for the 2020 Carnival season.
A three-level stand will enable the Darwin Turf Club to market the carnival into Asia and southern states, boosting capacity of the Darwin Cup Carnival and increasing tourism in the Top End.
The stand will provide uninterrupted views of the racecourse, enabling the Darwin Turf Club to provide and market a world-class experience in Darwin.
The top 2 levels will also have the ability to be transformed into private boxes that will assist with securing the many corporate clients that attend the Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival each year.
Northern Territory Minister for Primary Industries and Resources, Paul Kirby commented: “events like the Darwin Cup Carnival attracts thousands of people every year – including many from interstate and overseas – so it is fantastic to see the expansion of the Carnival with the provision of this new stand.
“The expanded Darwin Turf Club facilities incorporated in the multi-purpose stand have wider benefits for tourism, investment attraction and the local community.”
Chairman of Darwin Turf Club, Brett Dixon added "this new multi-purpose stand is a game changer that takes the Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival and the Territory to another level.
"This exciting new facility enables us to now strategically market our already successful Cup Carnival into Asia and the Southern States which has not been possible in the past. Having the ability to provide this style of race day experience throughout the Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival will allow us to partner with Tourism NT and local operators to lure the Asian visitor to experience the many attractions and events that only Darwin has to offer."
