Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival

Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival

Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival is an annual community festival held along a 2km stretch of Nightcliff Foreshore in Darwin, welcoming in the Top End dry season. In 2023 it was celebrated as the Sunbuild Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival, under a naming rights agreement with the local building company.

The free family-friendly festival began in 2005 and features a swag of stages and spaces showcasing music, dance, visual arts, and sand sculpting on the local beach. Community stalls from creative-makers and local clubs, groups and organisations, alongside plenty of Top End and cultural tucker to tantalise the taste-buds weave throughout the stages and spaces set above the stunning Larrakia Country’s ochre cliffs.

This is a spectacular event in true Darwin style. Around the second weekend of May each year like clockwork the sea breeze from the Timor Sea pushes back the humidity and the community celebrates onsite at ‘Seabreeze’.

Over three glorious afternoons and evenings encompassing a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in early May, from Sunset Park, along past Nightcliff Jetty, Nightcliff Pool, Kitesurfers Corner, threading along to Nightcliff Park, the Festival offers an easy-going, fabulous experience for all facets of the arts, culture, foods and exquisite outdoor lifestyle that the Top End has to offer.

Come and experience the amazing local, Indigenous and multicultural talent while the cool seabreeze that brings the dry season washes over you.
