The Northern Territory borders will officially re-open on July 17, 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 post Covid-19 tourists to turn their holiday dreaming into holiday bookings so visitors can enjoy the warm tropical north and spectacular blue skies of the Red Centre.
From July 17, self-quarantining for domestic travellers arriving in the Territory is no longer required.
Visitors will be keen to visit popular destinations including Darwin, Alice Springs, Uluru-Kata Tjuta, Kakadu National Park, Kings Canyon, Nitmiluk National Park, Arnhem Land and the Tiwi Islands, says Tourism NT executive general manager of marketing Tony Quarmby.
“The Territory is a truly iconic destination; one that’s on the bucket list for many Australians," he says. "For too long Australians have said ‘I’ll go one day’ – well that day has come, there are no excuses left.
“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.”
