Camp in your own backyard this Easter

08 April 2020

The current advice is clear – stay home, if you can. So why not set up your tent in your yard instead this year?

The Department of Tourism, Sport and Culture encourages you to share your backyard camping set up for your chance to win a prize. To enter, share your photo on @ParksandWildlifeNT Facebook by Monday 13 April.

If you do need some fresh air over the long weekend, some areas remain open so you can visit a park or reserve near you for walking, bike-riding, birdwatching or other solo or small-group activities.

In the Top End, Casuarina Coastal Reserve and Charles Darwin National Park remain open with the mountain bike and shared-use trails a great option to help you stay active over the weekend. Take a walk at the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens or try your luck at bird-watching at Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve.
