There was big news yesterday from the top end with the official announcement of The Northern Territory borders re-opening on 17 July, making iconic destinations including World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park accessible again for all Aussies to enjoy.
From 17 July, self-quarantine for domestic travellers arriving in the Territory is no longer required with attractions, restaurants and tour operators getting ready to welcome new and returning visitors.
Tourism NT Executive General Manager of Marketing Tony Quarmby anticipates first-time visitors will be keen to visit popular NT destinations including Darwin, Alice Springs, Uluru-Kata Tjuta, Kakadu National Park, Kings Canyon, Nitmiluk National Park, Arnhem Land and the Tiwi Islands.
“The Territory is a truly iconic destination; one that’s on the bucket list for many Australians. For too long Australians have said ‘I’ll go one day’ – well that day has come, there are no excuses left,” Mr Quarmby said.
“Everyone here is looking forward to re-opening and sharing this spectacular part of our own backyard with the rest of the country,” said Mr Quarmby.
From the Red Centre to the Top End, the Territory is the envy of international locations with beautiful outback adventures, an abundance of wildlife, World Heritage-listed National Parks, waterfalls, swimming holes and the world’s oldest living culture.
Off the back of news of the NT’s borders reopening, Ayers Rock Resort announced yesterday that they will reopen on Saturday, August 1.
“This is your chance to escape your routine and the winter chill; the weather is warm, it’s more affordable than before, and there’s plenty of wide-open spaces to explore and shake off the ‘isolation’ blues,”
Tony Quarmby, Tourism NT Executive General Manager of Marketing
As one of the safest places in Australia, those bucket list experiences that are synonymous with the Northern Territory are ready to be explored again from 17 July.
