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 and the United States of America.

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 Northern Territory and Hawaii from their involvement in the bombing of Darwin and Pearl Harbour, and the ongoing importance of peacekeeping missions today.

Three Year 10 or 11 students from Northern Territory schools will travel to Hawaii in early December 2018.

All costs for the six day tour will be covered including travel, accommodation, insurance, meals, uniforms and additional expenses.

The tour is anticipated to be a joint program by the Northern Territory and the State of Hawaii with students from both jurisdictions expected to participate.
