Territory Day Dinner at the Ooraminna Pub

On 1 July 1978, around 6000 Territorians gathered at Darwin’s Cenotaph to be part of something special.
Self-Government was finally here, a new era, bringing with it a sense of relief and excitement that the Northern Territory could now stand on its own two feet, no longer dictated to by the Commonwealth Government.
The day began with the swearing in of the inaugural NT Government ministry, before public celebrations kicked off with a guard of honour and the first official flag-raising.
Inspiring words marked the celebrations, including a message from the Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Fraser:
Today’s historic occasion symbolises the strength and the spirit of men and women of the Territory, a spirit that has endured suffering, withstood hardships and overcome many times of adversity
