How good is the Territory!

Thousands flocked to events across the Territory on 1 July to celebrate everything they love about this place we call home. It was a cracker of a night to revel in this cracker of a place.

Alongside concerts and spectacular firework displays, hundreds of Territorians also joined in our competition, sharing images of what they love about the NT and telling us how good the Territory is.

Check out some of the incredible pictures and stories below.

How good is the Territory!

The Territory is one of the most unique places in Australia.

Welcoming and laid back, it is the home of the real outback, ranging from desert landscapes and the red dirt of the Red Centre through to savannah woodlands, rocky escarpments and the tropical islands of the Top End.

It is home to iconic natural treasures, ancient Aboriginal culture, fascinating birds and wildlife, dramatic landscapes, opportunities for adventure, unique experiences, a rainbow of different languages and nationalities and colourful characters. It’s also a place where business opportunities and a culture of innovation thrive.

This year we asked Territorians to tell us how good the Territory is by sharing images and a caption about what they love about this incredible place, for a chance to win 2 x $2500 Territory Experience vouchers.

Haseena and Nicole were our two lucky winners of the “How good is the Territory!” competition - capturing us with their beautiful pictures and wonderful words about why they love living in the Territory.
