Travellers score free NT holiday
TWO European backpackers will travel to the Northern Territory later this month as part of a Tourism Australia campaign.
French woman Aurore will travel around the Top End from tomorrow while Englishman Nick will arrive in Darwin on October 30 and travel down to Alice Springs.
The two backpackers are competition winners who will have their trips funded for them as they share their adventures on social media.
The backpackers are arriving as Tourism Australia gets underway with its new youth campaign Aussie News Today where young people show off the good news of the day.
Tourism businesses are being encouraged to showcase their work and submit ideas to #AussieNewsToday to be featured. Youth travellers make up 25 per cent of all tourists to Australia.
