About the Peace in the Pacific study tour

The Chief Minister’s Peace in the Pacific Study Tour offers Territory students an opportunity to learn about the shared military history between the Northern Territory (NT) and the United States of America.

Three NT students from year 10 or 11 will travel to Hawaii in early December 2019.

The study tour will visit important military sites in Hawaii to get an understanding of the mutual experience and sacrifice of the people in the NT and Hawaii from their involvement in the bombing of Darwin and Pearl Harbour, and the ongoing importance of peacekeeping missions today.

The NT Government will provide support for travel and accommodation costs.

2018 Peace in the Pacific Study Tour

The five participants of the study tour returned from their six-day tour of Hawaii. During the tour, they visited military sites and attended Pearl Harbor commemorations on 7 December 2018.

The students and teacher chaperone documented the study tour online by each creating a blog.
