A multi-million-dollar retail expansion near Darwin Airport is set to go ahead now that a restriction on bottle-shop floor space has been lifted, a move that could allow Dan Murphy's to open.

The NT Airports group put a halt on the development plans when the Northern Territory Government introduced a 400-square-metre floor-space limit that stopped Dan Murphy's from opening a megastore in Darwin.

In response to a review of the Territory's liquor legislation, the NT Government has now dropped the restriction, paving the way for the liquor giant to set up shop in the Top End.

NT Airports property director Ross Baynes said other potential tenants had tentatively pulled...

Darwin party drug supply cut - NT News

THE dismantling of an international drug ring has cut the supply of party drugs to the Darwin rave scene.

Police seized 1.4kg of MDMA and 367g of cocaine in two separate raids on the same syndicate destined to be consumed within the back packer community at dance parties.

Englishman Oliver Cox, 34, faced Darwin Local Court on Friday as the eighth man charged over the alleged international drug syndicate.

He was arrested in Darwin on Thursday and was charged with two counts of supplying a commercial quantity of drugs.

Cox was remanded in custody until his next court appearance on December 12.

Drug and Organised Crime detective Senior Sergeant Mark Stinger said three backpackers arrested in July allegedly with substantial quantities of cocaine and MDMA were allegedly part of the same syndicate.

SkyCity weighs its options for Darwin resort - NT News

THE company which owns Darwin’s SkyCity Resort may seek a business partner to help develop the underperforming casino and has not ruled out selling off the asset, New Zealand­’s National Business Review reports.

The Darwin business is owned by New Zealand’s largest casino operator, SkyCity Entertainment Group, after it bought the asset from US-based MGM Mirage in 2014.

The New Zealand paper reports­ the Kiwi parent company’s chief executive, Graeme Stephens, told shareholders in Auckland that the Darwin casino­ had had “a tough year”, which he attributed to the increased­ number of poker machines allowed into pubs and clubs in the casino’s catchment area, according to NBR.

Regulatory changes in the NT have seen the number of gaming machines increase by 75 per cent since 2015.

But Mr Stephens also said the company had “wonderful facilities” and owned adjacent undeveloped land “which...

Paul Bauert: Meningococcal vaccine must be provided free for all - NT News

The NT Meningococcal Epidemic — Back to the Future?

The current Meningococcal (Men) epidemic spreading across the Northern Territory and deeply worrying our Territory families, reminds me of a particularly torrid time in early 1993.

Our Royal Darwin Hospital paediatric team had spent an exhausting weekend trying to save the lives of two young children with meningitis.

Each was desperately ill, requiring advanced life support, including ventilation, in the Intensive Care Unit.

By early Monday morning their outlook remained grim. Tired, frustrated and angry, I took photos of the dying children and asked for a meeting with the Health Minister, Mike Reed.

I showed the photos and explained that the disease, which was causing such devastation, was completely preventable.

We had identified that the bacteria infecting the children was Haemophilus influenzae Type B (HiB).

We were aware that...

US Ambassador rebuked over Darwin Port leasing comments - NT News

US OFFICIALS were given a hard slap by the head of Australia’s Foreign Affairs and Trade Department for their “gratuitous” public comments criticising the leasing of the Darwin Port to Chinese state-owned company Landbridge.

According to a report in The Australian, the nation’s most senior diplomat, Peter Varghese, admonished Washington’s top man in Canberra, US ambassador John Berry, at a meeting in 2015.

The Australian report says in late 2015, Mr Varghese, the then-secretary of the Foreign Affairs and Trade Department, summoned Mr Berry to discuss the Darwin Port deal after US complaints it could jeopardise national security.

Reports at the time said then US president Barack Obama raised his concerns with Australia.

There were claims the port could be used by the Chinese to spy on US assets rotating through the region.

$200m luxury hotel The Westin Darwin a step closer after agreement signing - NT News

4229339 200m-luxury-hotel-the-westin-darwin-a-step-closer-after-agreement-signing-nt-news

Marriott International has reaffirmed its commitment to run a $200 million luxury eight-storey hotel in Darwin’s waterfront precinct.

The company announced the signing of an agreement with Landbridge Hotel Operations Pty Ltd to open The Westin Darwin, officially committing to its plans to expand into the Northern Territory.

The signing of the agreement could not come at a better time, with the Territory’s peak industry body the Chamber of Commerce NT warning at the weekend of a flat economy and businesses looking to government to fast-track major job-creating projects.

“People can’t see what’s coming forward in the future and that concerns them … what are the next big drivers?” Chamber of Commerce NT deputy chief executive Brian O’Gallagher said.
