Australia’s Northern Territory – connecting delegates to what matters

Australia’s Northern Territory continues to deliver an array of multi-sensory experiences for international business events, enabling delegates to make a meaningful connection to the land, its ancient culture and its people.

Reconnecting to what matters has never been more relevant in today’s world, whether for a conference or an incentive.

Retreat to the NT

Across the Northern Territory (NT), high-end eco-lodges and retreats provide unique wilderness stays for small incentive groups. One of the NT’s newest options is Finniss River Lodge, which is located on a working cattle property approximately 90 minutes from Darwin.

The six new luxe suites command expansive views and the property balances best practice pastoral work with environmental sustainability, whilst offering exceptional tailored experiences for exclusive, small group incentives.
