Australian Traveller magazine have released a '100 Ways to Holiday Here This Year' special edition, with the Territory featuring heavily across an impressive 14 ways and 18 experiences - from outback to art, and road trips to island getaways. 

The rest of Australia is quickly catching on to the allure of the Territory and what locals have always known – the Northern Territory is the answer to your next holiday experience.

The issue highlights the spectacular landscapes, swimming holes and must-see iconic Territory destinations as well as smaller, quirky, lesser-known experiences and places. 

Further affirmation of the Northern Territory’s appeal is our impressive destination gracing the cover.

Alice Springs stars in a full page as “a cool and quirky city” and highlights great cafes, festivals, art, mountain bike trails and star gazing among other unique attractions.

Sunsets on the Tiwi Islands, a dip in Kakadu’s Koolpin Gorge, Aboriginal culture at the Barunga and Garma Festivals – the list includes the very best the Territory has to offer.

The issue also coincides with the launch of The Territory is the answer marketing campaign to attract interstate visitors to the NT. The national campaign runs until October and includes TV, print, digital, email marketing, out of-home and radio advertising, social media, public relations and consumer activations.
