THE TERRITORY REMEMBERS – 75 YEARS – Commemorating the bombing of Darwin and the defence of Northern Australia



The Territory Remembers is a program of activities commemorating WWII wartime events with a connection to the Northern Territory.

Territory Remembers program aims to increase awareness of the Northern Territory’s involvement in WWII, recognise the contribution of Indigenous Australians to the war effort, and preserve and share our rich military history with future generations to create an understanding of how the war shaped the Territory.  The 2-year Territory Remembers Program culminating in the commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the bombing of Darwin and defence of Northern Australia includes activities right across the Territory.

·      Events (including regional events) commemorating significant events/dates in the Territory’s WWII history

·      Education and History Program

·      Community Memorial Grants Program

·      Community Event Grants Program

·      A travelling display to all regional centres during the 2016 mid-year Show Circuit

·      Static exhibitions throughout the NT.
