Mackay Entertainment & Convention Centre, QLD
The Developing Northern Australia Conference continues to grow every year, along with the national momentum for achieving better economic, social, and environmental outcomes for the north and its people.
It is that one regular opportunity for northern Australians and their supporters from across the nation and the world to come together to celebrate progress and to refine strategic efforts.
It’s the place where multiple connections are made east to west, north to south, and from the north to the wider world. It is also the place where deals are done and where partnerships for business, research, investment, and problem solving emerge.
Importantly, it also enables strong Indigenous and other important voices from across the north to come together to share stories across diverse themes such as investment, health, defence, workforce and industry development and natural resource management.
The conference also provides the premier annual opportunity for everyone to have a real input into the policy and program thinking of the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments.
The Conference Program Advisory Committee are seeking presentations of varying styles, including case study examples, emerging research, project or program analysis and learnings, as well as a strong call to action.
This platform is for government and industry leaders, researchers and the workforce alike to come together and highlight the challenges, developments, and opportunities of northern Australia.
