Quotes from Executive Director Marketing Tourism NT Tony Quarmby:

“To have the Red Centre holiday deals to the NT and of course our amazing food produce and experiences showcased to interstate audiences and holiday intenders during primetime viewing around the nation is fantastic for the Territory and our tourism and hospitality businesses.

“A production like MasterChef, one of the highest rating shows on Australian television, brought more than 60 cast and crew to the Red Centre for filming and now we will see the benefits of bringing more visitors to the NT.”
