The countdown is on for this year’s Territory Day celebrations, with a range of events planned from the Top End right down to the Red Centre.
The 2021 theme is ‘Home’ – a fitting tribute to the safe, vibrant and welcoming Northern Territory that has become a haven not only for those who already live here and returning Territorians, but also for those who looked north, saw something better, and decided to call the Territory home.
Four signature and 17 community events – all complete with fireworks – will take place across the Territory, uniting us as we celebrate everything we love about this unique place we call home.
Appealing to both Territorians and visitors, the four signature events will include a special Welcome to Country, to drive home the Territory’s proud Aboriginal heritage.
Adding to the local flavour, the soundtrack to the firework displays at these events will feature a range of music by Territory musicians, including Yothu Yindi, Tasman Keith and Stevie Jean, Jess Mauboy, King Stingray and Warumpi Band.
Nationally renowned performers will travel to the Territory and line up on stage alongside some of our best home-grown talent at the events in Darwin and Alice Springs, with Hot Dub Time Machine and Eskimo Joe heading to the Top End and Busby Marou to the Red Centre.
The Katherine and Tennant Creek events will have a ‘homegrown’ focus, with an exciting array of local musicians given the opportunity to perform.
Family friendly events across this vast land, from Groote Eylandt to Yulara, will help regional and remote communities celebrate what they love about home.
