Parks and Reserves - What's open

Further restrictions in some Northern Territory (NT) parks and reserves will be lifted from noon on Friday 29 May 2020.

You still cannot travel into a designated biosecurity area to access a park. Residents or essential workers within the area may visit those parks within their boundary. Find out about the restrictions for designated biosecurity areas on the NT Government coronavirus website.

From noon Friday 5 June designated biosecurity zones will be lifted. Unless closed for seasonal closures, all parks and reserves will be open and accessible to Territorians.
