About Asset College
Asset College’s Darwin office is located at 66 Smith Street, the hear of Darwin City. The corner of our offices intercepts with Searcy Street. We are located in the same building as AKTEC Business Solutions, Nous Group and Venture Housing Company.
Our office is just a couple of blocks away from the beautiful waterfront precint area and is surrounded by the best that the city has to offer.
The capital of the Northern Territory, Darwin is a former frontier outpost. It is also known as the Australian gateway to Asia.
The city and it’s occupants are relaxed and laid-back but that doesn’t mean there aren’t great opportunities for those living in or travelling to Darwin. Darwin is also known for it’s diverse culture, largely attributed to being closer to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta than it is to Canberra!
You’ll find a range of industries abundant in Darwin including mining, offshore oil and gas production, pastoralism, tourism and tropical horticulture.

Things to do
After you’ve finished your training with ASSET, why not partake in some of the local entertainment activities available. Darwin is known for it’s diverse culture and with that comes some great foodie markets filled with dishes from right around the world. If you’re attending your training in May, perhaps you could get a ticket to BASSINTHEGRASS, Darwin’s biggest music festival.
If you’re looking for something a little more family friendly, you could visit The Wave or Recreation Lagoon, meet crocs at the Crocodylus Park or watch a movie at the Deckchair Cinema.
There are also many support services available in the city for those who need them. This includes services such as Australian Regional and Remote Community Services, Darwin Community Legal Service and Danila Dilba, an Aboriginal community-controlled organisation providing culturally-appropriate, comprehensive primary health care and community services.
