Northern Territory Youth Week

Northern Territory Youth Week (NTYW) is a celebration of young Territorians.

It provides them with an opportunity to:

  • express ideas
  • raise their concerns
  • attend drug and alcohol free events.

This year, NTYW will run from 4 to 14 April.

Bus services in Darwin and Alice Springs will also be free during NTYW. Get the free bus travel ad PDF (207.1 KB) to show the driver.
