Welcome to the Filipino Australian Association of the Northern Territory of Australia.
FANT: The Beginning
The Filipino-Australian Association of the Northern Territory had its beginning from the original Filipino Association of the Northern Territory (FANT) formed by a small group of professional Filipino-Australians in October 1973. Under the leadership of Lino Molina as first president, the association made impressionable presence in the Darwin community through social gatherings characterized by cultural displays of dances, costumes, food and hospitality.

An interim committee composed of Lino Molina, John Rivas, Sam Marquez, David Astley, Lilia Marquez, Edna Rivas, Brian Manning, Elena Ralph, Lydia Astley, NicanorPagsanjan, Joe Villanueva, worked to finalize the constitution prior to formal election of new office bearers and Executive Officer.
