Term & Holiday Dates
We provide you with all of the important information you need to help plan your family holidays or work holidays.
Northern Territory school holiday dates usually occur at similar times each year and term length always sits between 9-11 weeks.
The Northern Territory has slight differences in start and finish days between urban and remote schools. However, from 2024 to 2027, urban and remote schools will have the same start and finish dates.
Remember to check with your school regarding additional pupil-free days. Private and independent school dates will vary and it is worth noting that in general Year 10, 11 and 12 students have different finishing dates to the other grades in term 4. If your child attends a non-government school you will need to check the term dates with the school directly.
If you would like to know public holiday dates please visit our sister site NT Public Holidays for everything you need to know about public holidays in the Northern Territory.
The information presented on this website does not take into account Student Free Days which are set by each school individually.
Private and catholic schools tend to use these dates as a guide but their dates sometimes differ slightly from state run public schools.
Information on these calendars is gathered from education department or government sources. We recommend double checking information against official education and government websites to confirm the dates are correct. From time to time the data on this website is updated to keep the information up to date.
