Celebrate Your Territory

Territory Day is a chance for Territorians to celebrate this incredible place we call home.

Every year on 1 July, the Territory comes alive with fireworks, concerts and community events to recognise the day the NT declared independence from the Commonwealth Government in 1978.

The Territory: The Place We Call Home

The Territory is full of amazing individuals who call this place home.

While some are born and bred, many have come from across the country or overseas to root themselves in the red soil. Others have come on holiday for a visit, left and then found themselves returning months or even years later to make this unique place home.

Read some of their stories below, and share yours on social media using the hashtag #WhyTerritoryIsHome
