Northern Territory Young Achiever Awards


The Northern Territory Young Achiever Awards were created in 1994, with the purpose of acknowledging, encouraging and most importantly promoting the positive achievements of young Territorians up to and including 29 years of age as of 31st December each year. The awards are an opportunity to demonstrate their achievements and showcase the recipients as role models within the community.


Tickets to the Gala Presentation Dinner are now on sale!



In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we have postponed what is always a sell-out NT Young Achiever Awards Gala Presentation Dinner from Friday night 17th April to the new date of Wednesday 16th September.

But don't worry your tickets purchased will be held in credit towards the new event date of the 16th September 2020, so that you do not miss out. You don’t have to do anything, your booking for 16th September is confirmed! Additional tickets are still available for purchase, until sold out.

Please ensure that you let the other guests in your party know about the date change. Thank you for your understanding and patience and please don't worry as your attendance for the new date for this extraordinarily popular event are secure!

We sincerely apologise for the change - it is something that is completely out of our control and we want to do our best to keep all of you safe.

We encourage you to cancel any accommodation or flights you may have booked for Friday 17th April and rebook for 16th September. It is our understanding that airlines and hotels are waiving cancellation fees and giving credits towards new flight and accommodation bookings.

During this time, remember to stay safe and look out for one another – for more information specifically regarding the virus please visit the Australian Department of Health’s COVID-19 Information Page or the World Health Organisation Advice Page.

Thank you for supporting our young people by attending the Northern Territory Young Achiever Awards.
