Alcohol Reform in the Northern Territory

In 2017 the Northern Territory Government commissioned the Alcohol Policies and Legislation Review to deliver a cohesive approach to alcohol harm minimisation.

The Final Report provided 220 recommendations on reforms to alcohol policy and legislation.

The Northern Territory Government's response to the Alcohol Policies and Legislation Review Final Report comprises two important elements:

  1. NT Government Position on Alcohol Policies and Legislation Review Final Report Recommendations, which sets out the NT Government’s position on each of the 220 recommendations.
  2. The Northern Territory Alcohol Harm Minimisation Action Plan 2018-19, which sets out the policy and legislative reforms, enforcement and compliance activities and harm management strategies and services the NT Government is committed to delivering, to prevent and minimise harms associated with alcohol misuse in the NT.

To bring about real change and improvement, governments, business and the community need to work together. Everyone in the Northern Territory has a role in minimising the harm associated with the misuse of alcohol.
