Northern Territory Holidays
Australia's Northern Territory is famous for its rich and fascinating Aboriginal heritage and stunning landscapes, such as the iconic Uluru rock formation, Kakadu and Katherine Gorge. A Northern Territory holiday allows to experience the raw natural beauty of the Australian outback up close, from the fierceness of crocodiles, to a hike through a national park, or a relaxing afternoon along the remote, untouched coastline.
Experience The Untouched Landscape Of Australia's North
Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is a massive natural land formation that has to come to be recognised as Australia’s natural landmark, and has always been an extremely important sacred site to local Aboriginals. Tour the rock by walking around the base or take the steep 1.6km ascent to the top and make sure you see this huge red rock at sunrise or sunset to see its colour evolve with the sunlight.
Boundless Outdoor Adventures
Your Northern Territory holidays can be filled with adventure, sightseeing and relaxing at the same time. Visit the World Heritage listed Kakadu and spend days exploring its mesmerizing waterfalls and dark green waterholes. For the brave, kayak through gorges and witness the saltwater crocodiles in their natural habitat during a tour of the Katherine Gorge. Spend a day out fishing off the coast and try to catch some elusive Barramundi. Watch the sunset in style on a camel safari along the coastline, or fly high into the sky and witness the spectacular views from a hot air balloon ride.
If you're keen to get extreme, you will love the adrenaline spiking, heart-racing experience of taking an 80 kilometres per hour jet boat ride through the magical wetlands to see water buffalo, wild boar and crocodiles in the wild.
