Our Mission

To inspire Territorians to celebrate and recognise the diversity, achievements and lifestyle that makes Australia great.

The Australia Day Council Northern Territory is a community based not-for-profit incorporated body. Established in 1986 we have been working with the Northern Territory communities for over thirty years.

Our purpose is to work with and for the people of the Northern Territory to:

  • Unite through reflection, celebration and inclusiveness,
  • Foster and recognise excellence and service within our communities,
  • Embrace cultural diversity and promote our national day with respect and integrity,
  • Facilitate productive relationships across the Territory, and
  • Ensure our sustainability.
What is

Australia Day?

Australia Day is a day for all Australians. No matter where our personal stories began. It’s a day to reflect on what it means to be Australian, to celebrate contemporary Australia and to acknowledge our history.
