Established in 2007, Off The Leash Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation with a focus on promoting Northern Territory events, arts and culture. Off The Leash (OTL) magazine is an events-based publication – your indispensable guide to what’s on across the NT. Previously a Top End publication, OTL expanded in 2022 to become a Territory-wide publication, also distributing to and showcasing events in the Red Centre.

We print 11,000+ copies each month and distribute to over 230 locations across the NT, with a readership of 33,000 Territorians and welcome visitors. In each edition, you'll find inspired articles, insightful recommendations and the most comprehensive event listings and calendar available – Off The Leash is the perfect read for those wanting to make the most of life in the Northern Territory, from the tropical Top End to the vibrant Red Centre!

Got an event you'd like to share? Whether you work for a council, an arts organisation or are a community member, it's free to upload your event to our website (scroll down to find out more). With options to promote in print and online, we have all bases covered.

Months of publication: Mar | Apr | May | Jun | Jul | Aug | Sep | Oct | Nov | Dec/Jan (combined)
