Over two days Food Future's will cover broad cross-sector issues as well as focusing in on specific aspects of Northern Agriculture. On day one sessions will investigate the big picture presented by markets and economics, issues to be discussed will stem from the experiences of successful Northern Farmers, research and development, soil and water resources, indigenous participation and environmental imperatives.


Following on from the inaugural Northern Australian Food Futures Conference in November 2015, the Food Futures Regional Road Shows will continue the discussion in key regions of Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory. The aim of the Food Futures Regional Road Shows is to seek input from regions and find out What does Northern Development mean for The Ord-Kimberley, the Flinders and Gilbert Regions and The Greater Katherine Basin and Alice Springs Regions. The Regional Road Showsideas to regional farming areas and gather further input from participants.


Far from finishing with the Darwin conference Food Futures will hit the road later in November, taking ideas to regional farming areas and gather further input from participants.

The Food Future’s model works towards the development of regions from the Great Dividing Range across to the west of Broome and south to Alice Springs. This vast area experiences similar developmental issues which are acknowledged by Federal and State Governments. Now is the opportune time to take advantage of developmental strategies being formed and ensure that engaged regional growers have input.
