About Us

NT Show Coun­cil is the peak body for the sev­en Agri­cul­tur­al Show Soci­eties in the North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry, pro­vid­ing them with an avenue to raise and address issues of com­mon inter­est, and of mate­r­i­al or finan­cial ben­e­fit to their mem­ber organisations.

A mem­ber based, not-for prof­it organ­i­sa­tion, we aim to pro­mote the role and sig­nif­i­cance of North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry Shows to their regions and the wider community.

  • Pro­mote and inform our com­mu­ni­ties of the val­ue of sus­tain­able agriculture 
  • Deliv­er inno­v­a­tive, pro­gres­sive and desir­able com­mu­ni­ty events
  • Advo­cate on behalf of show soci­ety members
  • Sup­port pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment of our members 

NT Show Coun­cil aims to pro­mote and pro­tect the gen­er­al inter­ests of Show Soci­eties so they can con­tin­ue to put on safe events and increase com­mu­ni­ty wellbeing.

In 2019 over 117,000 peo­ple attend­ed a Ter­ri­to­ry show.


The Ter­ri­to­ry is well-known for its remark­able and unique Shows. Our Shows sup­port the agri­cul­tur­al and pas­toral indus­tries of our com­mu­ni­ties, but also the wider regions with tourism, local and com­mer­cial businesses.

Col­lec­tive­ly the Shows cel­e­brat­ed near­ly 350 years in 2019, includ­ing sev­er­al mile­stones. Both Freds Pass and Ten­nant Creek shows turned 40, Ade­laide Riv­er recog­nised 50 years since incep­tion, and Alice Springs Show cel­e­brat­ed its 60th year.

These events share a vision to show­case and cel­e­brate the best of their region, with each Show offer­ing their own slice of Ter­ri­to­ry life.

All our shows are COVID safe events!
