Darwin International Laksa Festival 2020

Celebrate Darwin's multicultural community, love for food and tropical climate at the Darwin International Laksa Festival 2020.

About this Event


The Top End will embrace its multicultural community, love for food and tropical climate while supporting local businesses, with Territorians taking part in one of our favourite pastimes - eating laksa.

The Territory's laksas are recognised internationally as the best in the world. The Darwin International Laksa Festival begins with the Laksa Food Tour from 26 October until 29 November. Download the app to find out where you can visit participating restaurants to taste and vote for your favourite laksa dish or laksa inspired-by dish!

The winners of the People's Choice awards from the app votes will be announced, as well as the official Golden Bowl at the Darwin Laksa Festival on 29 November 2020.

The event is open from 3pm - 10pm at the Chung Wah Society, Woods Street, Darwin.
