NT government offering cash incentives for NT holidays

Font Size:

Tourism NT will launch its $5 million NT Summer Sale incentive campaign from 1 October to 31 March 2021, offering cash incentives for holidays to the territory.

Tourism NT has partnered with all Australian shop front travel retailers including Holidays of Australia, Helloworld and Flight Centre, aiming to incentivise demand for the NT over the summer period, says a Tourism NT release.

Travellers can get $200 off for every $1000 spent on an NT booking made through campaign partners (up to a maximum of $1000 discount).

So a $6000 trip could effectively end up costing travellers just $5000.

The discounts apply to bookable flights, accommodation, tours and attractions or hire vehicle through campaign partners, and bookings must be made between 1 October 2020 and 31 March 2021 for travel within these dates.

“The global pandemic has caused a lot of hurt for our tourism and hospitality operators. We know it’s been hard,” said NT Minister for Tourism and Hospitality Natasha Fyles.

“Our largest ever summer tourism campaign will help drive visitation to the NT in what is our traditionally low period. 

“If you’re considering visiting the NT, our message is clear. All Australians not located in a current hotspot are welcome to come to the Territory.

“With international travel on the backburner for a while yet, we’re encouraging everyone from areas where COVID-19 is contained to enjoy an adventure of a lifetime here in the NT.”

The campaign is aimed at non-COVD hotspots, and the Northern Territory has the lowest incidence rate of COVID-19 among Australian states and territories, making an already desirable destination even more desirable.

Does this inspire you to book a trip to the Territory?

    I love the NT, but let’s get serious. This is their low season for good reason.

    In the Centre, it’s just too hot to do much at all. In fact, you are warned against doing a lot of the popular tourist things because you might die.

    In the Top End lots of the popular attractions, such as in Kakadu, are closed because it’s too wet. Your car might get stuck, and you might die.

    I shall probably look at more detail of their offers, but……

      MJM – Please read my first and final sentences again. And my second one – This is their low season for good reason.

      All very good points to consider Winston. Thank you. It’s not often that we get such nasty comments on Australian sites such as the one from MJM. I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come. I hope it doesn’t put you off commenting in future.

    Anyone who stayed in the Territory during Dec/Jan will understand why the offer is there. I do like the heat as we have lived many years in Africa as well as Northern Queensland. It would be a challenge for some southerners though.

    I agree Caz. It can be difficult to post without being shot down. I’ve been planning to go to the NT but it will be mid year when I can do everything I want. Hoping they extend the offer. That’s if I am allowed out of Victoria by then.

    NT. Go to Nullumbyy & hire a boat for a day & visit some of the many small islands. Uninhabited.

    I’ve been to lCairns and Brisbane in the summer, the wet season, would like to go to the Northern Territory, Darwin and Alice Springs, but not during the wet. Too hot and too much rain. The only thing stopping me is I live in Melbourne, so I would not be wellcom just now.
