Learn all about the NT to score a trip to the Red Centre

With more than half of Aussies planning on travelling domestically this year, there’s no better time to learn about our country’s iconic hotspots.

For travel agents who usually focus on selling international trips, making the transition to focusing on domestic may seem daunting.

This is why Tourism NT is easing the stress by offering up a new training program, backed by an exciting incentive to get you involved.

The new program launches on Tuesday 11 August at 11am (AEST) with a live webinar, and will include training modules and newsletters, which will be released every quarter.

You’ll also receive campaign and product updates, upcoming events and loads of resources such as itineraries, maps and seasonal tips.

If you need a little motivation, the kind folk over at Tourism NT have promised there will be great prizes up for grabs, including a ‘Discover the Red Centre’ package for two valued at $5,000.

The program comes just weeks after the Northern Territory eased border restrictions for domestic travellers and is designed to help the industry get a better understanding of the region, to help you sell it with ease.

To go into the draw to win one of two gangbuster trips to the Red Centre, including flights, accommodation at Sails in the Desert and plenty of once-in-a-lifetime experiences – register to participate in the first webinar and complete the two training modules by 31 October 2020.

Each quarter, Tourism NT will also be giving away other great prizes like smartwatches and phones, Akubra hats and NT travel experiences!
