Darwin will be buzzing with basketball excitement when the Harlem Globetrotters arrive on Monday, 24 June 2024.
Tickets to watch the iconic basketball team The Original Harlem Globetrotters will go on general sale on Thursday, 30 November 2023 at 10:30am, after an exclusive pre-sale from 10.30am on Tuesday, 28 November 2023.
It is the first time in decades the global entertainment team will travel to the Territory, bringing a contingent of some of the world’s best basketball players to the Top End.
The Globetrotters, who began in 1926, offer a spectacle of skill, humour, and jaw-dropping moves that will leave audiences shouting for more.
During their last visit to Australia in 2022, the world-class act drew massive crowds keen to see their exceptional basketball skills and showmanship, and a Territory audience can expect to be equally impressed.
The Globetrotters’ visit is part of an Australian and New Zealand tour next year, and comes as basketball continues to soar in popularity across the Northern Territory.
The Darwin visit is supported by the Northern Territory Government through the Northern Territory Major Events Company.

Quotes attributed to Chief Minister and Minister for Major Events, Natasha Fyles:
“The internationally acclaimed Harlem Globetrotters are rolling into Darwin, bringing their world-famous tricks, flips, and slam dunks with them. They will have audiences on the edge of their seats. This is a great win for the Territory, for Territorian basketball fans and even for non-basketballers who can catch a world-class act in their own backyard.
“Territorians love basketball, as we’ve seen with the popularity of the Salties and the enthusiasm for the NBL Blitz last year. So it’s great to be able to bring some of the best players in the world to the Territory through the Harlem Globetrotters.
“Make sure you get your tickets now and get ready to witness a game that’s not just about the score, but more a slam-dunking, hoop-shooting laughter-inducing spectacle.”
Quotes from Arnold Bernard, Director, International Booking, Harlem Globetrotters:
