The Northern Territory borders will officially re-open on 17 July with iconic destinations including World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park accessible again for all Australians to enjoy.

Tourism Northern Territory is inviting everyone to turn their holiday dreaming into holiday bookings so you can all enjoy the warm tropical North and spectacular blue skies of the Red Centre.

From 17 July, self-quarantine for domestic travellers arriving in the Territory is no longer required. Our tourist destinations, attractions, restaurants and tour operators are getting ready to welcome new and returning visitors.

As one of the safest places in Australia, those bucket list experiences that are synonymous with the Northern Territory are ready and waiting. Exploring the Territory has moved from your ‘one day’ list to the best place to be from 17 July.

Tourism NT Executive General Manager of Marketing Tony Quarmby anticipates first-time visitors will be keen to visit popular NT destinations including Darwin, Alice Springs, Uluru-Kata Tjuta, Kakadu National Park, Kings Canyon, Nitmiluk National Park, Arnhem Land and the Tiwi Islands.

“The Territory is a truly iconic destination; one that’s on the bucket list for many Australians.  For too long Australians have said ‘I’ll go one day’ – well that day has come, there are no excuses left,” Quarmby said.

“Everyone here is looking forward to re-opening and sharing this spectacular part of our own backyard with the rest of the country.

“This is your chance to escape your routine and the winter chill; the weather is warm, it’s more affordable than before, and there’s plenty of wide open spaces to explore and shake off the ‘isolation’ blues,” he said.

From the Red Centre to the Top End, the Territory is the envy of international locations with beautiful outback adventures, an abundance of wildlife, World Heritage-listed National Parks, waterfalls, swimming holes and the world’s oldest living culture all waiting for you.
