The Administrator of the NT, Vicki O'Halloran, will be traversing red and dusty roads on four wheels as she heads to some of the remotest parts of the expansive Territory.
She will be hearing from some of the lesser heard voices living outside main Territory centres such as Darwin and Katherine in an attempt to understand remote challenges.
Coinciding with Naidoc Week, the Administrator will be out bush for approximately nine days.
After spending time in Timber Creek, the Administrator will meet with residents and call into organisations in communities including Yarralin, Lajamanu, Kalkarindji, Marlinja, Ngukurr and Minyerri.
"As we celebrate NAIDOC, I am very much looking forward to this valuable opportunity to meet with (remote) Territorians to learn more about their stories, challenges and achievements," the Administrator said.
NAIDOC Week 2019 has kicked off under the theme of Voice. Treaty. Truth - Let's work together for a shared future, echoing the call for constitutional recognition for Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people.
Naidoc Week can be traced back to the 1920's, with groups seeking to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of First Nations people in Australia, but there has been little progression.
The Administrator's trip will include visits to health and aged care centres, meetings with local Indigenous corporations and regional councils.
Patients at the Purple House Lajamanu Dialysis Unit will get a visit.
And she'll join briefings from local police and diverse community organisations.
"Local organisations provide vital services in these regional and remote areas," she said.
"I am pleased to have the chance to find out more about their work and to celebrate their service to Territorians and our communities."
