Remembrance Day program of events

Remembrance Day is an important day of commemoration in the calendar and provides all Australians with an opportunity to remember and reflect on the service and sacrifice of our past and current service personnel.

The Northern Territory Government will launch the ‘Lights of Remembrance’ project displaying sophisticated projections which bring our history to life with moving photos and powerful symbols of Australian Defence Force personnel in various theatres of operation.

In Darwin and Palmerston the ‘Lights of Remembrance’ can be seen from 8 to 11 November 2021 at:

  • The Hilton, Mitchell Street, Darwin City
  • Pop up cinema, Smith Street Mall, Darwin City
  • The Water Tower, Palmerston City.

In the regional centres of Katherine, Tennant Creek and Alice Springs, the Territory’s first travelling semi-trailer cinema will venture over 3,000km and will deliver a high-quality Remembrance Day tribute, which will include a series of images and short film clips projected onto the side of a semi-trailer.

This unique regional centre commemorative showcase will be on display in the week leading up to Remembrance Day at:

  • Cultural Centre, Katherine - 7 November
  • Purkiss Reserve, Tennant Creek - 8 November
  • Royal Flying Doctors Lawns, Alice Springs from 9 to 10 November.
