Every July 1st Darwin & the Northern Territory are the only areas in Australia able to have fireworks. Local’s say “Darwin is very lucky to have fireworks! It creates a sense of independence for the territorians from other states.”
Now the award winning Dominator Brand Fireworks are available for sale in Australia!
On the first of July each year Territorians celebrate Territory Day, marking the commencement of Self Government in the Territory on 1 July 1978. The day is celebrated across the Northern Territory in a number of ways, including the famous Territory Day fireworks (both public and private).
