Why visit The Northern Territory

The Northern Territory is the most authentic Australian experience. From the natural waterholes and rock formations in the Red Centre to the sprawling wetlands of Kakadu in the north, it is a place of diverse landscapes that really capture the otherworldly feel of Australia. It is a place ripe with adventure and the perfect destination to escape the mundane everyday and connect with the natural world.

When to visit The Northern Territory

The climate of the Northern Territory is a little different to the rest of the states and this is because the land stretches so far between north and south. The north, also known as the Top End, has a tropical climate with two seasons: the Dry (May-Oct) and Wet (Nov-Apr). In the south, the Red Centre, it is an arid climate that follows summer (Dec-Feb), autumn (Mar-May), winter (Jun-Aug) and spring (Sep-Nov) seasons.

Getting around The Northern Territory

There are daily flights that operate between the major destinations of Uluru, Alice Springs and Darwin, while the Airnorth service can take you between the regional centres. If you're looking to take the scenic route, you can hire cars in Darwin, Uluru and Alice Springs, where you can also find local travel options such as bicycle hire, taxis and bus networks.

Things to do in The Northern Territory

The iconic Uluru is one of the great natural wonders of the world that promises to take your breath away the moment you see it, especially if you visit during the sunrise or sunset. Connect to one of the oldest cultures on the planet by going on a Territory Art Trail and discover authentic Aboriginal artworks. Heading north opens you up to a whole new perspective with the Kakadu National Park where you can take a cruise along the billabongs and hike through rugged escarpments. Or why not join the party and attend one of the many festivals and events, such as the Beer Can Regatta which will see you building a raft out of beer cans!

Where to eat and drink in The Northern Territory
