Get Involved in Territory Day in Darwin

By Alicia Jarrett

Territory Day is coming up on July 1 and residents and owners of property in Darwin are being encouraged to join in on the festivities.

The event celebrates the anniversary of when the commonwealth government passed on self governance to the Territory in 1978 with a spectacular series of fireworks including rainbow rockets, bangers and roman candles.

The Territory government is excited about the occasion but is putting safety at the forefront of the event, saying that it is the “number one priority”.

Territorians can head to Mindil Beach to see the spectacular event and enjoy market foods or can pack a picnic to watch the show.

Fireworks can also be purchased and used with a permit in the Territory for home use, which is unique to Australia, but must be used with caution to avoid harm to oneself, others, or property.

“We are a unique part of Australia and acknowledge that we also have a unique lifestyle that sets us apart from everywhere else in the nation,” said acting minister for business John Elferink.

Regulations for the purchase of wholesale fireworks have been strengthened and applications must now apply for a certificate from the commissioner of police.
