Following the biggest ever BASSINTHEGRASS last weekend in Darwin, Tourism NT and NT Major Events Company have combined forces with TikTok and Australian pop-rock band Lime Cordiale to create an iconic TikTok LIVE performance from Nitmiluk National Park.
Live from the Baruwei Lookout offering spectacular views of Nitmiluk Gorge, the TikTok LIVE will open with a moving Welcome to Country by Jawoyn Association Chairperson Lisa Mumbin.
The performance will also feature incredible footage of Nitmiluk Gorge, complementing Lime Cordiale’s hit songs as an exclusive sunset performance on TikTok.
To watch go to https://www.tiktok.com/@limecordiale at 6pm (NT time) on Friday 21 May 2021.
As well as this special performance, Tourism NT captured Lime Cordiale brothers Oli and Louis Leimbach on their road trip from Darwin to Katherine which will be shared on Tourism NT’s Instagram page @NTAustralia
From Edith Falls to Nitmiluk Gorge, Katherine Hot Springs and the lively café culture in the Territory, the brothers got the chance to see the Territory in all its glory.
