Where you can't drink in the NT
List of restricted areas
There are communities where you can't drink alcohol, or have restrictions around alcohol in the Northern Territory (NT).
Some of these are alcohol protected areas, meaning drinking alcohol is strictly banned in these communities.
Others are general restricted areas, which have rules around the sale of takeaway alcohol. If you live in a general restricted area you may have to apply for a individual liquor permit if you want to drink alcohol in a place other than a licensed venue.
Below is a list of restricted areas in the NT. If you are travelling through the NT all of these communities will have signage at their entry points telling you if they area a alcohol protected area or a general restricted area.
