The finale will hero the Top End’s beautiful landscapes while showcasing bookable, local adventure activities available on www.northernterritory.com

“A huge congratulations to our very own NT couple Jasmin and Jerome for making it to the final three, they are great ambassadors of the Territory.

“Tourism NT is excited to see the natural beauty of the Katherine region and of course the stunning gorge itself showcased to hundreds of thousands of viewers around the country tonight.

“The Amazing Race Australia has the perfect audience to promote the region to. These viewers are seeking interesting and unique travel destinations and activities and by collaborating with the Amazing Race Australia and Jetstar we are providing destination awareness at the same time as highlighting flight options and deals to the region.

“We encourage tourism operators to continue to leverage the mass national exposure from the show and promote what’s truly different about their products and activities and show the nation all the experiences the NT has to offer.”

As stated by The Precinct Tavern Director Darren Lynch:
