Nature Therapy: Tourism NT Launches 'Territory Is The Answer' Campaign

Following the announcement of borders re-opening in the Northern Territory from 17 July, Tourism Northern Territory has launched a new national marketing campaign, ‘The Territory is the Answer’. 

Following the announcement of borders re-opening in the Northern Territory from 17 July, Tourism Northern Territory has launched a new national marketing campaign, ‘The Territory is the Answer’. 

If you’re in need of some nature therapy and outdoor adventure, the NT will probably be at the top of your travel list right now and this new campaign is going to get you dreaming and planning your, and your client’s next domestic getaway.

The campaign, launched this week, uses current consumer sentiment and uncertainties Australians are experiencing around holiday planning to capture their imagination and inspire a Northern Territory escape. 

“The creative behind this campaign taps into that sentiment and delivers on the Northern Territory’s promise of being different in every sense. Exactly what we need right now.”

Corey Swaffer, KWP! Executive Creative Director.

The campaign will be running a series of TV ads that are specifically designed to attract Australian travellers looking for incredible experiences in their own backyard. Cue wide open spaces, fresh air, adventure, and the opportunity to connect with friends, new and old. 

Spearheaded by TV advertising, The Territory is the Answer national campaign runs until October and includes print, digital, email marketing, out-of-home and radio advertising, social media, public relations, and consumer activations. 

“Never before has international travel been off the table for Australian travellers and this is an opportunity for people who usually seek overseas experiences to now consider local destinations they have previously put off until ‘one day’ in the future. That ‘one day’ is now.”

Tony Quarmby, Tourism NT Executive General Manager of Marketing.

“The Territory is the Answer campaign is designed to raise awareness of our unique Northern Territory holiday icons in addition to our lesser-known gems that are ready and waiting for all Australians, whether they are first-time or repeat travellers,” Quarmby said.

“It is the first major domestic campaign we are launching since the announcement that borders are opening. The campaign provides the answer to one of the biggest questions in today’s current climate – ‘Where do we go and what can we do now?” 

The campaign creative has been delivered by KWP! leveraging insights from the current situation and finding humour in things like awkward social distancing in restaurants. 

KWP! Executive Creative Director, Corey Swaffer said, “There’s never been a time, that I can remember when everyone has been in the same boat like this. We’ve all been through a range of emotions and we’re now ready to smile, laugh, and travel again.
