Territory Day

Territory Day recognises the day the NT was granted self governance from the Commonwealth Government in 1978.

Every year on 1 July Territorians come together to officially celebrate everything we love about this amazing place we call home, and the people who make the Territory so unique and special.

The People Make The Place

The Territory is one of the most unique places in Australia, and we believe that it's the people that truly make it what it is.

To celebrate these people that make the Territory such an amazing place to live, we gave two lucky Territorians a chance to WIN a luxury stay in the NT worth $2,500! All you had to do was submit a picture of someone who makes the Territory great, and explain why!

A neighbour, a mate, a colleague or your local barista. We wanted to hear about them all. And we did! We heard from scores of you who couldn’t wait to tell us about the people who make the Territory so special! You can view all the nominations here.

Congratulations to the two deserving winners - Nana Terry in the Top End, and Mary from the Red Centre! We were overwhelmed by their nominations, which spoke of their Territory hospitality, kind hearts and giving personalities. They truly make the Territory an amazing place to live!

You can read their wonderful nominations below.
