NANT was founded in 2007, as a result of combined effort from its community members. It got its full shape on 2008 and was registered as an organization in 2008. It was incorporated under the Association Act on 11 March 2010 with an intense discussion and desire to serve the Nepalese community.
Settlement of people from Nepalese origin in Darwin started in mid-nineties as few professionals migrated from interstate. Only few of these professionals permanently stayed in NT, making presence of Nepalese People in Darwin (NT) insignificant until 2004/05.
