Darwin’s migration story

Darwin's migration history is deeply intertwined with its geographical location as Australia's northernmost city. Indigenous communities lived in the region for thousands of years before European settlement. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the city served as an important port for trade and communication, attracting a diverse range of migrants. During World War II, Darwin experienced significant growth as a strategic military base, leading to an influx of military personnel and civilians. In the post-war years, migration from Europe, Asia, and other parts of Australia contributed to the city's multicultural fabric. 

Darwin remains a destination for migrants seeking employment opportunities and a unique lifestyle in the tropical north of Australia.

Frequently asked questions

How do I qualify for a 190 visa in Darwin?

Once you receive the state nomination, you will be invited to apply for the 190 visa under the General Skilled Migration program. To be eligible, you must meet the Department of Home Affairs' basic eligibility requirements.
