Territorians and visitors will be able to book brand new tourism experiences with the Northern Territory Government today announcing new funding to boost the sector and bring more people to the NT.

Over $170,000 will be available to Territory tourism operators to develop new evening attractions. 

The Tourism Evening Experiences grant program offers funding of up to $14,500 to support NT operators to develop new and/or seasonal tourism offerings that deliver tourism benefits to the regions, with the 14 operators co-investing more than $82,000 to bring their evening experiences to life.
