The Royal Agricultural Society has a 21 member Council. The Full Council is responsible for the organisation of the annual Darwin Show through its committees. The Board of Management has responsibility for overall management of the Showgrounds & Exhibition Centre.
In 1951 a very successful Exhibition was presented by the Maranga and District Progress Association – this became the first Darwin Show. Later that year THE NORTH AUSTRALIAN SHOW SOCIETY INC was formed and in 1952 staged the first Darwin Show held on its present site.
