Inhabiting much of Australia’s central mainland and central northern regions, the Northern Territory is one of the last remaining genuine ‘Outback’ destinations in Australia. With so many natural wonders, ancient history, rich culture and unique wildlife to explore, a holiday to the Northern Territory can be as diverse as the region itself.
Today, with its World Heritage-listed sites like Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and Kakadu National Park, along with a huge number of other natural attractions, there are plenty of places to lose yourself and become immersed in your surroundings. With its long history of Aboriginal settlement you’ll find plenty of Indigenous culture on display – everything from ancient rock art and cultural centres to the sacred and iconic Uluru. Arnhem Land, to the east of Darwin, is one of Australia’s last strongholds of traditional Aboriginal culture – rock art, bark paintings and the home of the didgeridoo.
Darwin is the perfect base to explore the natural attractions of World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park with one of the highest concentrations of Aboriginal rock art sites in Australia. Alice Springs is the perfect destination for an authentic Outback encounter. Spectacular sunburnt landscapes, Outback spirit, isolated communities and colourful local characters. There is a tour to suit everyone. As the hub of Central Australia, Alice Springs combines the rich culture and art of
indigenous Australia with a modern and vibrant atmosphere. Marvel at the enormity of Uluru, discover the spiritual significance of Kata Tjuta and explore the rim of Kings Canyon. Six hundred million years in the making, these incredible natural creations will captivate you from sunrise to sunset.

Darwin is the perfect base to explore the natural attractions of World Heritage Listed Kakadu National Park with one of the
highest concentrations of Aboriginal rock art sites in Australia. Litchfield is ideal for a day trip to experience the waterfalls, or
venture further afield to Nitmiluk National Park, the Tiwi Islands and Arnhem Land. You’ll love the relaxed outdoor lifestyle and warm weather in this multi-cultural capital. Founded as a northern harbour port in 1869, the population expanded when gold was discovered at Pine Creek in 1871. Darwin became a major allied military base during World War II for troops fighting the Japanese in the Pacific. More recently, in 1974, the city was rebuilt in the wake of Cyclone Tracy. This colourful history combines cultural and culinary benefits which you can experience at the weekly markets, in the restaurants and at the various festivals.
Spectacular sunburnt landscapes, Outback spirit, isolated communities and colourful local characters…welcome to Alice Springs! The perfect destination for an authentic Outback encounter. Surrounded by the rugged MacDonnell Ranges, ‘Alice’ as it is affectionately known, is a quintessential Outback town. As the hub of Central Australia, Alice Springs combines the rich culture and art of Indigenous Australia with a modern and vibrant atmosphere. Considered the gateway to the Red Centre, Alice Springs provides the ideal base for travellers exploring the area. Whether it be a day trip to attractions around Alice Springs, a trip out to the gorges, chasms and gaps of the West MacDonnell Ranges, an adventure to Palm Valley or Rainbow Valley or a longer journey to Uluru and Kings Canyon, there is a tour to suit everyone. Alice Springs has more art galleries than anywhere else in Australia. Visit the Araleun Arts Centre for contemporary Aboriginal art.
Discover the mysteries of the Red Centre as you embark on an unforgettable journey to Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon. Six hundred million years in the making, these incredible natural creations will captivate you from sunrise to sunset. Marvel at the enormity of Uluru, discover the spiritual significance of Kata Tjuta and explore the rim of Kings Canyon. Whether walking with a traditional owner, meandering atop a camel, exploring by 4WD, car or coach, or dining under a million stars, there is something to suit every budget and every visitor to the Red Centre. What makes this place so powerful is actually the sheer enormity of the rock, particularly as it rises somewhat unexpectedly out of a completely flat and barren landscape. Sit down and take in its immense size and solidarity - regardless of how many other punters you’ll be sharing this experience with, it’s guaranteed to be one of life’s 'sit back and sigh' moments.
Discover crystal blue waterfalls and lush waterholes, hit the trail in a 4WD, or take it nice and slow and wander through Litchfield National Park on foot. Get set for real adventure and to connect with nature at Litchfield National Park. At just over an hour from Darwin, it’s every local’s favourite day trip with its waterfalls and waterholes, bushwalks, four-wheel drive tracks, birds and wildlife.
Covering nearly 20,000 square kilometres of exceptional natural beauty and unique biodiversity, Kakadu National Park is teeming with wildlife, home to important Aboriginal rock art sites, and takes in diverse and exotic landscapes.
Exotic island retreats, historic sites, chartered fishing trips, cultural experiences, or just relax by the pool. Find yourself in paradise – East Arnhem Land is beautiful and diverse with remote and rugged coastlines, and white sandy beaches. This vast area of nearly 100,000 sq km of land is one of Australia’s last strongholds of traditional Aboriginal culture.
Soak up Darwin’s tropical night air, as well as aromas of food from all over the world beneath magical sunsets and browse the stalls at Mindil Beach Sunset Markets. Purchase natural skin care, local art, jewellery and clothing. Also make sure you visit Nightcliff and Parap markets, and the Happy Yess Market. Look out for regular and one-off markets in other regional centres, especially the Katherine Community Market, Alice Springs Night Markets and Todd Mall Markets.
Be captivated by the sheer sandstone walls of Kings Canyon. Witness a sunset from the gorge or experience a three hour guided climb to the rim and marvel at the breathtaking views of Watarrka National Park.
Throw a line into the waters of Darwin’s tropical coral reefs for a spot of offshore fishing. Catch a Snapper for lunch or a delicious Spanish Mackerel.
Nitmiluk National Park (Katherine Gorge) covers a vast area of escarpment country, including 13 gorges carved from ancient sandstone. Enjoy a cruise or paddle along the gorges at your own pace.
The East and West MacDonnell Ranges are an adventure playground with hiking trails, 4WD tracks and swimming holes. Take in the beauty of the rugged ranges from the air in a hot air balloon or on a helicopter flight, or take it all in on the Larapinta Trail, stretching 223 kilometres along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges.
