Events

1 July marks the anniversary of the Northern Territory being granted Self-Government in 1978, under the Northern Territory (Self-Government) Act 1978.

Territory Day celebrates everything we love about living in the Territory – the people, the landscape, the culture and our diverse communities.   We encourage everyone to get involved, celebrate with family and friends, attend a local community event or one of the FREE major celebrations held in Darwin, Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs.
