Featured events include the Alice Springs Beanie Festival, Blacken Open Air Festival, Outback Cycling – Easter in the Alice and Uluru Camel Cup in the Red Centre.
While in the Top End, locals will be encouraged to attend a Taste of Kakadu, Barunga Festival and the Territory Tribute - Overture to Peace event.
