Quotes from Executive General Manager Marketing Tourism NT Tony Quarmby:

“The Northern Territory is not a normal holiday, and our Seek Different campaign highlights our uniqueness to the rest of the country. 

“The Project, where news is delivered differently is the perfect media partner to highlight that if you seek different, then the NT is the holiday for you.

“In the Territory Australians can be themselves and express who they want to be, while at the same time be surrounded by our abundant nature and wildlife, learn about our history and immerse in our Aboriginal culture to experience all the adventure the Territory has to offer. And do something different to anything they’ve ever done before.”
