Project Description


The Discover Darwin project aims to support economic development in the Territory by helping skilled migrants match their lifestyle preferences to suburbs in Darwin. It gives prospective residents a taste of the uniqueness of the Top End and better prepares them to embrace life in the Territory.


Data Story


The project translates open data into easy to digest information relevant to the user. Data from the NT Department of Trade, Business and Innovation and the Australian Bureau of Statistics gives the user a snapshot of employment and demographic information in the NT. Data from the Darwin City Council helps users get a picture of the greenspace and culture in Darwin and individual suburbs. The data can be manipulated by the user for personalisation. It is presented using infographics and a story telling approach. Significant potential exists for the incorporation of additional data sets.
