Festivals and Events
Festivals and Events in the Northern Territory
Festivals and events in the NT provide the perfect opportunity to participate, become part of the community fabric, and engage with the local people. Time your visit to the NT to coincide with some of our most memorable cultural events, sporting events, music festivals or outback rodeos.
Race a boat down a dry riverbed in the Henley on Todd regatta in Alice Springs. Bet on a grumpy camel at the annual Camel Cup races – Central Australia’s answer to the Melbourne Cup. And where else will you find a festival that celebrates the humble beanie? And it’s not only Central Australia where you can get involved...
And to get a true sense of the local lifestyle, time your holiday for an outdoor music festival, an arts event such as Darwin Festival or the Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Awards, or indulge your passion for sport as you follow your favourite footy team, V8 Supercar driver, or Superbike rider as they head north to escape the winter blues and bring some sporting excitement to the outback.
We’re the local experts who know people in all the right places. We can arrange your tickets to the events, and ensure you have a place to stay while you’re here, as well as making sure you don’t miss out on the must-dos in the NT – iconic landscapes, larger than life characters and our ancient cultural heritage.
