Northern Territory

The beating heart of Australia


The Northern Territory is the spiritual and cultural centre of Australia, characterised for its otherworldly Outback landscapes and the country's most famous natural icon: Uluru. If you're fascinated by unique landscapes and indigenous culture, this is the place to go. You'll return feeling more connected with the earth and Aboriginal culture, and awed by the people and places you've encountered. 

Visit the region's many national parks to uncover unique natural landscapes. Tjoritja West MacDonnell National Park, Nitmiluk National Park and Watarrka National Park offer walking & hiking trails and awe-inspiring natural scenery. Explore these regions from the air, by canoe or 4WD and stay overnight to truly experience the scale of the landscape you're wandering through. Immerse yourself in traditional Aboriginal culture in Arnhem Land, and explore the beautiful coastline that could rival that of the sunshine state. In the World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park you'll find some of the oldest indigenous rock art in the world and get to spot some of the migratory birds that call the park's wetlands home. Darwin's culture and dining scene is heavily influenced by the city's proximity to Asia, resulting in a rich array of flavours for visitors to sample. 

Dive into the heart of Australia and let your World Travellers consultant tailor a Northern Territory holiday to suit your style of travel.
