After take-off, the flight crew identified that the aircraft was not pressurising as expected. As a precautionary measure, the flight crew levelled the aircraft at 11,000 ft and were cleared to descend to 10,000 ft. As the aircraft descended through 10,300 ft the cabin altitude warning presented and the flight crew donned oxygen masks. On return to Darwin, the flight crew identified that the cargo smoke depressurisation switch had been selected. The incorrect configuration was not identified prior to departure.
