$12 million grant to build a multi-purpose stand
The Northern Territory Government have this morning released the following details -
The Territory Government is providing Darwin Turf Club with a $12 million grant to build a multi-purpose stand, which will see the creation of around 70 local jobs during construction and boost the international tourism appeal of the Darwin Cup Carnival.
Construction of the multi-purpose stand will start immediately after the 2019 Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival and is expected to be ready for the 2020 Carnival season.
A three level stand will enable the Darwin Turf Club to market the carnival into Asia and southern states, boosting capacity of the Darwin Cup Carnival and increasing tourism in the Top End.
The stand will provide uninterrupted views of the racecourse, enabling the Darwin Turf Club to provide and market a world-class experience in Darwin.
The top 2 levels will also have the ability to be transformed into private boxes that will assist with securing the many corporate clients that attend the Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival each year.
