Quotes from Minister for Tourism, Sport and Culture, Lauren Moss:

“Territory Day might look different this year, but we can still celebrate our special day and what makes the Territory great – our people, culture, landscapes, lifestyle and achievements.

 “It is 42 years since self-government and the Territory has come a long way during those four decades. We are a unique place with a unique community, and the strength of that community has been increasingly highlighted throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Thanks to that community spirit, the Territory is one of the safest places in Australia right now, and we look forward to celebrating that as much as self-government this Territory Day.

“We have a range of initiatives to celebrate Territory Day this year - choose the celebration that suits you best, or get involved in them all.”
