@ Happy Traveller: Your comment about it not being “rocket science” gives the impression that cheap flights is all it needs.
I think that is part of the problem but there also needs to be a reason to come here as we are competing with many other destinations for visitors and workers.
What substantial new attraction has been established in Alice Springs in the past 15 years? Probably count them on one hand. But then again, it’s not “rocket surgery”.

Amazing … $32m budget and $28m in salaries. They know who to look after, don’t they.

Territory tourism playing catch-up
I see in today’s “Perth Now” website / paper that the Western Australian Government has done a deal with Qantas to entice more people to go to Broome than Bali.
Airfares have been reduced for a few days a week to make it more affordable to go to Broome.
Be nice if our own elected government would think outside the box a little bit and learn from other jurisdictions.


National Aboriginal Art Gallery: Anzac Oval off the table
We keep hearing about how much it will cost to build, but does that include the artwork that needs to be on display? Has that been purchased yet? And how much is it expected to cost to run this thing per year? A lot of unanswered questions but nice artist impressions in the advocate, paid by the taxpayer of course.
