Celebrate with us

On the evening of October 22nd, 1963, the Automobile Association of the Northern Territory (AANT) was born, launching a remarkable 60-year journey. Starting with a gathering of over 100 people at Darwin's Town Hall, it became a significant chapter in Northern Territory's history. Today, we celebrate our progress and thank our dedicated Members.

Today, we celebrate this milestone and thank our dedicated members.

Quotation mark “The NT has unique roads, weather and a welcoming sense of community, not often found elsewhere in Australia. Our founding group knew no one understood the Territory quite like Territorians." AANT President - Trevor Cox

As my work took me around the country, I have been a member auto clubs in VIC. QLD. WA. and now NT. On the few occasions I have needed help [sometimes in remote areas] I have found it to be handled by friendly and knowledgeable people.
P Williams - Member
Thank you so much for all the times your organisation has rescued me over all those years.

I am just grateful for the years of your coverage. I am an aircraft mechanic and started to maintain my car when I first arrived in Alice Springs in Dec 1973. It is the only car I have ever personally owned and have driven it since I brought it in my second year of my apprenticeship. My car is a 1960 VW Beetle I think the coverage of the car a person who is driving a car is a good policy. Therefore, I have stayed with AANT since then. Hopefully my maintenance of the car will keep me from needing roadside help, but a major mechanical failure can happen.
