The opening of some pubs and clubs across the Territory met with an increase in random breath testing by police as well.
Police continued high visibility patrols of licensed premises as part of the COVID-19 response and in support of the stage 2 restrictions being lifted in the Territory.
A total of 179 compliance checks were undertaken, with Police reporting no issues identified.
Police said they noticed an improvement by businesses and patrons as they adjust to the changes associated with lifting of restrictions and the Chief Health Officers directions.
NT Police partnered with park rangers at Litchfield Park over the weekend to educate park patrons and to raise awareness of their responsibilities in relation to physical distancing and the relaxation of restrictions.
Reports from officers at Litchfield indicate a significant improvement on behaviours observed in previous weeks.
NT Police in the Darwin region also continued with random breath testing over the weekend with 343 drivers tested overnight, all of which tested negative for drugs and alcohol.
Commander David Proctor said, "NT Police were extremely pleased with how the public had responded to the lifting of the restrictions in a positive way and in a responsible manner.
"The overall behaviour of the public this weekend lays a good foundation for the relaxing of further restrictions on June 5."
As part of Operation Crown: Roadmap to the New Normal, Random Breath Test stations were set up during Friday to coincide with the reopening of licensed premises.
The RBT component of the operation was intended to be highly visible in multiple locations in the Darwin region to deter and detect drink driving and drug driving offences.
The operation incorporated members from Road Policing and all major stations in the Darwin region.
A total of 688 drivers were tested with all of them returning negative results.
One driver was issued a notice to appear in court for medium range drink driving and three drivers were issued with traffic infringement notices for low range drink driving.
A traffic infringement notice was issued to a driver for driving with an unrestrained child.
Nine drivers were issued with drug infringement notices.
Police issued a notice to appear in court to a 19-year-old male driver with zero alcohol limit conditions on his license.
The male had pulled off the road prior to an RBT station on Stuart Highway in Yarrawonga and hid in scrubland prior to handing himself into the custody of police.
