Mark the Northern Territory’s anniversary of self-governance by lighting a banger or watching fireworks sparkle over the Timor Sea from Mindil Beach.
Territory Day is one of the most spectacular events on the festival calendar. For one day only the Territory lights up in a rainbow of rockets, bangers and Roman candles.Mindil Beach in Darwin is a popular vantage point to watch the spectacular.
Celebrating the anniversary that self governance was handed down to the Territory by the Commonwealth Government, Territorians and visitors alike gather for public fireworks shows. They also compete with one another to produce the most brilliant pyrotechnics display on the only day of the year where people are allowed to light fireworks.
