Northern Territory considers better road and air connectivity for increasing tourist numbers

Published on : Friday, July 28, 2017

indexWhile this year Australia as a whole enjoyed a 9.2 percent increase of international tourists, number of visitors to the Northern Territory, from interstate and overseas saw a continued decline. Kakadu Tourism chairman Richard Allert said Kakadu National Park had seen a drop in visitors for several years.

He said, “A key reason for the extended period of decline has been the accommodation and flight situation in Darwin, which is the primary gateway city to Kakadu.”

Chief executive of the NT Department of Tourism and Culture, Alastair Shields, said one of the key infrastructure that Kakadu needs is better roads. With improved road conditions, top attractions like Jim Jim Falls and Gunlom could stay open for longer, perhaps even year round. Changes to flights in and out of Darwin are also being considered.
