The Northern Territory was tonight beamed to the rest of the country with the screening of the popular Bachelorette series finale – which was filmed in the Top End earlier this year.
This is the first time The Bachelorette Australia franchise has filmed its finale on Australian soil.
Through the Territory Labor Government’s record $103 million Turbocharging Tourism stimulus package, as part of co-operative marketing partnership and The Bachelorette finale promotion, Jetstar has released a 48 hour travel deal, which will air during the finale.
From Thursday 15 November to Friday 16 November those residing in Australia are able to book travel to Darwin and then return home for free.*
Bachelorette viewers and Australian holiday hunters can take advantage of this stellar sale and book a bargain priced deal to the Top End for travel from the middle of January to early April, and early May to the end of June 2019.
Minister for Tourism and Culture, Lauren Moss said that both the mass national exposure from the Bachelorette and the co-operative marketing promotion with Jetstar will offer Australians extra incentive to head to the NT.
Previous season finales have been held in Fiji and Singapore.
Throughout her stay in the Top End, Bachelorette Ms Oetjen visited Tjaynera Falls at Litchfield National Park, the Mary River wetlands, Kakadu and viewed the NT’s spectacular northern coastlines from above in a helicopter.
