If there was a time to go to the Northern Territory, this year is it.
With borders lifting, and wide open spaces aplenty – it’s the holiday destination we all need to visit in 2021.
Now, online travel booking platform Webjet has dropped a massive flight sale – with no pesky blockout periods – so you can get to parts of the Top End with a massive saving.
In conjunction with Northern Territory tourism, Webjet has dropped a six day sale, slashing all fares to Alice Springs – with all airlines – by $200.
The sale – which kicks off today – will last until May 11, so you will need to be quick to grab a bargain.
But with all travel dates and no blackout periods applied, you’re bound to find a time and discount that works for your booking.
The only catch is that the discount will not apply to intrastate fares, so you won’t be able to fly from Darwin to the Red Centre and receive the $200 discount.
Alice Springs, which has skyrocketed in the past 12 months as one of Australia’s hottest travel destinations, has a calendar full of events throughout the year of 2021.

“Travellers from all around the world have Uluru on their bucket list, and with many Australians having yet to make the journey to this incredible part of the world Webjet are delighted to be able to make bucket list trips an affordable reality,” Webjet’s David Galt said.
“The stark and majestic beauty of the Territory cannot be underestimated, alongside Uluru there are many other natural and cultural wonders to enjoy – there really is no other place on earth like it.”
Alice Springs was named as one of Australia’s favourite place for a holiday in 2021 by Skyscanner last week.
Flight booking data released by Skyscanner revealed that Cairns is the top destination for Australian travellers, with COVID-19 travel restrictions taking previous favourites like Bali and Phuket out of play.

The Tropical North Queensland city was found to be the top destination for travellers of all categories – couples, families and groups – for June to October this year.
But the platform said Alice Springs, a surprise contender, had suddenly become the third top trending search location among all Australian holiday-makers.
The Northern Territory town, which recently hosted the 10-day Parrtjima Festival and is close to the majestic MacDonnell Ranges and great expanse of the Simpson Desert, came third behind the Whitsundays and Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef.
Broome, Darwin, Hobart, Cairns, Adelaide and Gold Coast completed the list of top trending destinations for Australian travellers overall.
