SHARE your travel story with us and you could be on your way to a Darwin holiday to "do the NT" with Jetstar and The Senior Traveller.


DO YOU love sharing your travel stories and experiences with others? Have a way with words and an eye for what makes an engaging and entertaining story that will appeal to your family and friends?

If so, you may be just the inspirational writer we are looking for.

The Senior Traveller, in association with Jetstar, is looking for a senior to "Do the NT" and travel to Darwin on a four-night Jetstar holiday package and share their adventure.

To be considered for this competition, tell us in no more than 300 words about a memorable trip you took recently. Send us a photograph or two and tell us a little bit about yourself in no more than 100 words.

The winner and a companion will be winging their way to the Northern Territory with Jetstar to enjoy a four-night get-away in Darwin valued at $3500 including flights, accommodation, transfers and breakfasts.

They will enjoy a wonderful Wallaroo day tour to discover Litchfield National Park and the Adelaide River's famous jumping crocodiles as well as a five-hour Darwin City Explorer Tour taking in the best sights in and around Darwin with Tour Tub.

The tropical harbour city is a perfect holiday destination because of its vibrant yet relaxed outdoor lifestyle. Surrounded by the beauty of Litchfield National Park, World Heritage-listed Kakadu, remote Arnhem Land and the Tiwi Islands, the city has colourful markets, an outdoor cinema, al-fresco dining and diverse events and festivals, as well as great summer storms and brilliant sunsets.

On returning from the Territory, the winner will pen an article to be published in Jetstar's inflight magazine and website and to be shared on the airline's social media platforms.

The prize must be taken by July 31 this year.
