Northern Territory

From scenic flights, crocodile cruises and fishing charters to camel rides, overnight walks and waterhole swims, you're spoilt for choice in the NT

The Northern Territory is vast. Occupying about one sixth of Australia’s total land mass, its boundaries encompass a variety of contrasting landscapes and experiences, best tackled by exploring a few key destinations – each with their own distinct personality.

The Top End of the Northern Territory is known for its tropical weather, crocodiles, rich indigenous culture, great fishing, national parks and laid-back lifestyle. 

It is home to an eclectic mix of cultures whose outdoor lifestyle is complemented by brilliant sunsets, fantastic fishing and a colourful calendar of outdoor events.

Darwin is the Northern Territory’s multicultural capital, famed for its markets and festivals, Asian cuisine and beautiful natural harbour. It is also the perfect base from which to explore the natural treasures of World Heritage-listed Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks as well as the Tiwi Islands.

Kakadu National Park, the largest national park in Australia, is situated 254 kilometres from Darwin on the Arnhem Highway. Renowned internationally for its natural and cultural wonders, Kakadu has one of the highest concentrated areas of Aboriginal rock art sites in the world.

Further south, the Katherine region is a vast network of rivers, escarpments and gorges that weave through sprawling plains of cattle stations, national parks and reserves. In Nitmiluk National Park, the mighty Katherine River slices through towering sandstone cliffs to form the world famous Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge.
