The Skycity Triple Crown is a V8 Supercar event held annually at Hidden Valley Raceway near Darwin in the Northern Territory, Australia. Australia's northernmost racetrack had existed for several years prior to its upgrade for its national championship debut in 1998. The event is staged over a three-day weekend (Friday-Sunday). Practice is held on Friday. During most of its history the meeting was held to a three race format with the first race held on Saturday and two on Sunday. 2009 saw the adoption of the two stand alone races format with individual qualifying each day for each race.

The 2012 Skycity Triple Crown was a motor race for the Australian sedan-based International V8 Supercars Championship. It was the sixth event of the 2012 International V8 Supercars Championship. It was held on the weekend of 15–17 June at the Hidden Valley Raceway, in Darwin, the Northern Territory.
