Each 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. Click here for more info.
From the Top End down to the Red Centre, there will be free, family-friendly events with concerts in Alice Springs, Tennant Creek, Katherine and Darwin, and fireworks displays in 17 regional and remote communities. See here for details on signature events and here for community events throughout the Northern Territory.
Check with your local council and the event organisers as some are making their Territory Day events alcohol free.
Call your local council Rangers, or the authority responsible for looking after lost pets in your region.
