Department of Tourism and Culture Golden Ticket up for grabs at Show

Show-goers in Alice Springs and Tennant Creek could win a Golden Ticket to some of the hottest events, valid until the end of the year, just by visiting the Department of Tourism and Culture stand in the Parks and Wildlife Commission shed.

The Department of Tourism and Culture Golden Ticket winner will also get to enjoy money-can’t-buy-experiences unique to the Northern Territory.

They include a Buddy Ride in the Yeperenye Shopping Centre Street Parade, an exclusive guided tour for up to five people of Parrtijima – A Festival in Light and the chance to be a Zookeeper for a day at the Alice Springs Desert Park.

The Red Centre Golden Ticket also includes two VIP tickets to the RedCentreNATS Rock N Rumble concert featuring James Reyne’s Australian Crawl tour and the Rotary Henley on Todd Regatta. The lucky winner will also receive a Desert Mob prize pack and double pass to the State Theatre Company South Australia’s production of The Popular Mechanicals, courtesy of the Araluen Arts Centre and free entry to the 2018 Alice Springs Masters Games.

“The Department of Tourism and Culture is home to the very best of the Territory’s great lifestyle – our parks, arts and cultural festivals, unique heritage and tourism experiences and first class sporting events,” said CEO of the Department of Tourism and Culture, Alastair Shields.

“The prizes in the Golden Ticket represent some of the Territory’s iconic experiences and attractions as well as the variety of work the Department of Tourism and Culture carries out in the community.

“We’ve no doubt this is a Ticket all Territorians will want to win!”

The Department of Tourism and Culture stand joins the family favourite Parks and Wildlife Commission display, which this year encourages visitors to “take a closer” look at the Territory’s tourism assets as well as the plants and animals in our parks and reserves.

As part of the display, the stand will include Virtual Reality headsets showcasing the NT Government’s recent collaboration with Google, showcasing Uluru via Google Maps Street View.

Show-goers will also be able to dig for fossils, crawl into a bat cave, dress up like a Ranger or local animal, get up close and personal with a python and meet a Barn Owl between 11 and 12 each day.

Territory residents over the age of 18, who visit the Department of Tourism and Culture stand, can enter the Golden Ticket competition.

The Red Centre winner will be drawn on Friday 4 August. Terms and conditions apply. Visit for all the details.
