19 February – 25 April 2019
In the lead up to ANZAC Day, the HISTORY channel are proud to support the ‘Territory Tribute’, a program of events committed to sharing and honouring Darwin and the territory’s unique military history.
The Northern territory has experienced a military history unlike any other in Australia and was instrumental in the defense of Northern Australia during WWII. Now, the world class event program Territory Tribute, aims to commemorate and acknowledge these monumental moments. Territory Tribute traces back through the Northern Territory’s military history, from Darwin’s beginnings as a military hub in the 1920’s, to the bombing of Darwin in 1942 -the single largest attack ever mounted by a foreign power on Australian soil- and commemorates these key historical moments through a number of events.
The Territory Tribute program officially commenced with the Bombing of Darwin Day Commemoration on February 19 and events will be running through to Anzac Day on April 25. These events highlight the territory as a historical military destination within Australia and will explore the territory’s ongoing importance to the Australian Defence Force.
