Skål International Darwin

Welcome to Skal International Darwin Club
Home of the 2020 Australian National Assembly and Annual General Meeting.

Who are we?

Skål International Darwin Club is an organisation of tourism leaders in the Darwin & Top End region of Australia’s Northern Territory that is part of the international movement of Skål; a professional organisation of tourism leaders around the world, promoting global tourism and friendship. It is the only international group uniting all branches of the travel and tourism industry. Its members, the industry’s managers and executives, meet at local, national, regional and international levels to discuss and pursue topics of common interest.

Our 50th Anniversary in 2020

The first Club was founded in 1932 in Paris by travel managers, following an educational tour of Scandinavia. The idea of international goodwill and friendship grew and, in 1934, the “Association Internationale des Skål Clubs” was formed with Florimond Volckaert as its first President, who is considered the “Father of Skål”. Our Darwin Club was formed in 1970, which means that we are celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2020 – to coincide with our hosting of the 2020 Australian National Assembly and Annual General Meeting. Details of our exciting itinerary and calendar of events for this celebration will be available here soon.

Skål Today

International today has approximately 15,000 members in 370 Clubs throughout 83 nations. Most activities occur at local level, moving up through National Committees, under the umbrella of Skål International, headquartered at the General Secretariat in Torremolinos, Spain.

Skål International is governed by an Executive Committee of six members, elected by delegates to an annual General Assembly, held during the World Congress, hosted by a different country each year. This allows members first-hand observation of the travel and tourism potential around the world.

Skål International Darwin Club acknowledges the Larrakia, the traditional owners and custodians of the lands and waters of the Darwin region.
We pay respect to Larrakia elders past, present and emerging.

We also gratefully acknowledge our Club sponsors, Airnorth, 7 Darwin and Clickstarter.
