Location & History

Built in 1999, Discovery Nightclub quickly established itself as The
Northern Territory’s premier late night entertainment venue.

Just over a decade later, Discovery had solidified its iconic position
in the Australian nightclub industry. Playing home to some of the
biggest bands, DJ’s and touring acts makes the Darwin venue a well
known force and leading name in entertainment, both in the country
and world alike.

In Late 2011 the venue experienced one of its darkest days and was
forced to close its doors. Territorians were left wondering what
would happen to this important part of the Darwin night-scene.

Those who had frequented Discovery wondered if they had seen
the inside of the venue for the last time, and those too young were
left concerned that they would not get to experience this right-of-
passage and that the “Disco Days” would become only treasured
memories held by the generation before.

This uncertain future was put to rest in January 2012 when a fresh
team of experienced nightclub operators and investors saw the
importance of the venue and began to embark on a plan to renovate
and refurbish Discovery, restoring it beyond its former glory whilst
bringing it in line with international nightclub standards.

The new era of Discovery Darwin features three separate levels and
four individual bars; we have a section for you, whether it be to party
the night away on the dance-floor, get your groove on above the action
below, or sip cocktails in one of the many private booths.

The new Discovery Darwin has something for you.

Welcome home.
