Northern Territory Tourism

The Tourism industry plays a crucial role in the Northern Territory economy, contributing high levels of both Gross State Product (4.8% in 2011-12) and employment (around 8000 people were directly employed in 2011-12 and many more jobs are dependent on tourism).

The Tourism industry is represented at all levels of government:

  • Australian Level - Tourism Australia is the Australian Government agency responsible for international and domestic tourism marketing as well as the delivery of research and forecasts for the sector.
  • Territory Level - Tourism NT is the government agency responsible for guiding tourism development and promotion in the Northern Territory. It is part of the Department of Business.
  • Regional Level - The two Regional Tourism Associations play a key role in coordinating the efforts of industry, local government and the community.
  • Local Level - Local Tourism Bodies (Tourist Information Centres) and local government bodies are responsible for promoting their local area and driving or participating in local tourism development initiatives.
