Quotes from Deputy CEO Tourism NT Andrew Hopper:
“To have the Territory feature first as part of Tourism Australia’s summer series campaign is fantastic and will provide a much needed boost to the Territory’s tourism operators, accommodation providers and local businesses alike.
“Tourism Australia’s summer series campaign leverages recent activities by Tourism NT to change traveller’s perceptions about holidaying in the Territory.
“Tourism NT’s summer promotion is currently live with a 10Travlr partnership and the NT Summer Sale which are driving bookings to the NT from October to March 2021.
“With the Territory open to visitors nationwide it’s important to be front and centre in promoting a holiday here this year.”
