International marketing

Tourism NT is working to keep the destination top of mind via public relations and social media and utilising virtual platforms to continue with trade engagement, education and training.

In the context of the current global environment, we have streamlined our international marketing focus and resourcing to suit.

As part of our COVID-19 recovery planning, working in conjunction with Tourism Australia, our international marketing teams are on-hand to provide market intelligence to assist with the reactivation of our trade distribution networks, to guide our post pandemic campaign strategy and to help inform our aviation recovery strategy.

For further information please contact Rachel Telford for further information and find our revised international contact list here.

Domestic marketing

Our PR & Media team are continuing to share the stories of the Territory with Australia and are here to help communicate how NT businesses are adapting at this challenging time. If you’ve got an innovative way that you’re doing business, some positive news to share or an iconic Territory tale to tell as we navigate through COVID-19, we’d love to help promote your product or business. Contact our team on [email protected].

The Northern Territory consumer website has been refreshed with new content including travel articles such as 12 of the NT’s most inspiring Instagram accounts and new drive itineraries for Explorers Way, Nature’s Way, Red Centre Way, Outback Way, Savannah Way, Binns Track, Arnhem Way and Greater Litchfield Loop.

The team have also created a new program to re-launch existing Territory stories and media. An example of this activity is a recently published Forbes article encouraging travellers to virtually explore new places, which reintroduced Tourism NT’s previously launched Google Earth/Street view footage of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

New content is being published daily and with everyone around the globe at home dreaming of the Territory we will be able to convert this interest to travel booking and action when the time is right.

We encourage operators to share media articles and videos to inspire travellers and build excitement for when visitors are able to return to the Territory.
