Australian Population Association Conference: Coming to Darwin in 2018!

A beautiful Darwin dry season sunset

Dr Andrew Taylor 


Fresh from analysing newly released 2016 Census data, population experts, researchers, practitioners and students will be in Darwin on 18-20 July 2018 for the Australian Population Association’s 19th biennial conference. Along with stimulating content and great networking opportunities, delegates will enjoy Darwin’s perfect dry season weather, its warm and laid-back atmosphere and some ‘only locals know’ highlights. Population issues are paramount for the Northern Territory as we continue to experience relatively low rates of growth, affecting our economy and GST share. The 2018 conference will not only bring a large number of delegates to Darwin, contributing to businesses and our economy, it is an opportunity to present our research and discuss Territory population issues on the national stage.
We are leading the organisation of this major event with support from the Northern Territory Department of Treasury and Finance. The academic program is being managed by Dr Tom Wilson and will be contemporary and insightful. Attendees will experience fantastic value for money and the warmth and culture of our beautiful Top End. I urge academics, planners, policy makers, students and anyone with an interest in population related issues to pencil in the dates of 18-20 July 2018. More information will be available in coming months so stay tuned here and on the Australian Population Association’s website (

See you up North in 2018!
