The Northern Territory’s Tropical Summer has well and truly kicked off, signalling the start of awe-inspiring sunsets, spectacular lightning shows and lush greenery. It’s also the perfect time to nab some great deals on flights, accommodation and tours with the NT Summer Sale running until 31 March 2022.
As travellers currently enjoy crowd-free national parks, idyllic fishing waters and the Territory’s flourishing foodie scene, operators across the Territory are preparing for a huge 2022. Keep an eye out for new and upgraded accommodation, exciting seasonal tours, and many more events set to take place in the NT next year.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support over the last year and wish you and your families a very Merry and safe Christmas break.
