Territorians have redeemed more than 4500 tourism vouchers just two weeks into the oversubscribed scheme.
The $200 vouchers have generated $3.3 million in bookings, providing a strong boost for local operators.
Under the $5.2 million scheme aimed at getting residents out exploring their backyard and supporting local businesses, the full allocation of vouchers was snapped up within nine hours.
Residents with a voucher must book within 30 days for travel completed by October 31. For those who do not redeem their voucher within 30 days, their $200 allocation will go back into the funding pool.
Territorians who missed out on a voucher can sign up on the wait list for possible further allocations here.
The scheme was developed in partnership with Northern Territory Regional Tourism Organisations, Tourism Top End and Tourism Central Australia.

Vouchers can be spent with one of the four Visitor Information Centres (Darwin, Katherine, Alice Springs, Tennant Creek) on any bookable accommodation, tour, attraction or car hire either online, over the phone or in person.
Tourism Minister Lauren Moss said: "The results so far for our Territory Tourism Voucher scheme are phenomenal - over $3.3 million in sales and no one could have foreseen the full allocation of vouchers within nine hours on Territory Day!
"Just a fortnight in, Territory businesses are seeing strong results from the $5.2 million initiative which we anticipate will translate into $10.4 million in visitor expenditure into our economy.
"Right now the weather is phenomenal and there's never been a better time to book your Territory experience, explore your own backyard and support our local operators."
