Qantas triple points for Northern Territory: Worth it?


Flights to Darwin, Alice Springs and Uluru come with a bonus serve of points.

Need to top up your Qantas Points and also need a holiday? Qantas is offering triple the normal points earn on most of its Northern Territory flights.

Here are the key rules to watch out for:

  • You have to register for the offer online first.
  • You have to make the booking by midnight AEST Friday 15 April 2022 (so that's not much time to plan).
  • Your booking must be for a flight between 1 May 2022 and 3 April 2023.
  • You have to book a new return flight. One-way doesn't count, and you can't apply the deal to any existing bookings.
  • The flight must be Qantas-operated, so no Jetstar, sorry.
  • You get bonus Qantas Points, but no bonus Status Credits.

A Discount Economy return flight from Sydney to Darwin would normally earn 2,900 Qantas Points. With the offer, that goes up to 8,700 Qantas Points – enough in itself for a one-way Sydney-Melbourne flight. You'll earn even more if you book a more flexible or Business fare, or if you're a Silver, Gold, Platinum or Platinum One frequent flyer.

As usual, you shouldn't book a trip purely to earn points. But if you've had the Northern Territory on your bucket list for a while, this might move its priority up.

These are the routes which are eligible. They include the new Sydney-Uluru, Cairns-Darwin and Townsville-Darwin flights which Qantas launched in March.

  • Darwin-Sydney
  • Darwin-Melbourne
  • Darwin-Perth
  • Darwin-Brisbane
  • Darwin-Adelaide
  • Darwin-Cairns
  • Darwin-Canberra
  • Darwin-Townsville
  • Alice Springs-Sydney
  • Alice Springs-Melbourne
  • Alice Springs-Perth
  • Alice Springs-Brisbane
  • Alice Springs-Adelaide
  • Sydney-Uluru

Happy flight hunting!
