Parrtjima 2022 will be the eighth installation of the unique festival, which continues to grow and attract new audiences each year.

To help interstate visitors make the most of a trip to the Red Centre to immerse themselves in Parrtjima, boosting our economy in the process, Northern Territory Major Events Company has partnered with Travel Associates to create boutique travel packages. They incorporate not only the festival, but also a variety of memorable Central Australian experiences.

Independent research shows Parrtjima 2021 generated a Total Economic Stimulus of $11.5 million, of which almost $10 million was new money to the region. Many local businesses reaped the benefits.

Registering for Parrtjima 2022 means you will be one of the first to know when the full program is revealed, and you can be first in line to secure your spot at events with limited capacity, such as the talks and workshops.

Parrtjima keeps the flame of story and authentic Aboriginal culture alive by using the newest technology to tell ancient stories, all set against the 300-million-year-old natural canvas of the MacDonnell Ranges. The only authentic Aboriginal light festival of its kind, Parrtjima is the place where wisdom and warmth meet in the stunning Red Centre.
