Northern Territory

The Australian Indonesian Youth Association in Northern Territory was founded in mid 2012 and has been a strong element in building community of young people who are passionate about the Australia-Indonesia relationship. 

As the closest capital city to Indonesia, AIYA NT has been able to foster strong relations between connections and pathways for young people. We have been able to facilitate for a wide variety of social and networking events, including movie nights, media workshops, batik competitions, language exchange clubs and human rights workshops.

We are currently affiliated with various institutions such as the Consulate Republic of Indonesia, Charles Darwin University, and PPIA, collaborating with them in a range of events.

Stay up to date with these events through following our social media sites!
