OUTBACK WRANGLER AND TERRITORY LOCAL

WHAT WE CAN EXPECT IN 2017

There’s a heap of exciting things happening around the Territory at the moment, particularly in the Tourism space. Recently, I’ve had a lot to do with other local businesses including Venture North, Paspaley Pearls, Crocosaurus Cove and Remote Adventures NT. It’s awesome to be a part of the collaborations and innovations taking place that are putting the NT on the map. There will be some cracking new products coming on the market in the coming months – think pearl tours, remote fishing and beachfront dining – so watch this space.

In the first half of the year Outback Floatplane Adventures (OFA) plan on having our Finniss River Glamping experience up and running. We’ve built nine platforms featuring Lotus Belle Tents, each equipped with their own outdoor shower. The tents are set amongst the magnetic termite mounds surrounding a large elevated deck where OFA guests can enjoy the sunset and dinner under the stars.

Outback Wrangler Season 3 will back on National Geographic towards the end of 2017 and features some epic croc relocations and good laughs with the lads. It showcases the unique Territory landscapes, wildlife, mustering and characters of the outback better than ever before which is always great to share with international audiences.

This year is shaping up to be a good one and I get to go out with a bang with my wedding at the end of the year.
